ODBC Connector overview

You can use ODBC Connector to read data from and write data to any application that is ODBC compliant. You can also use ODBC Connector to read from or write data to Oracle Database Cloud Service.
Use an ODBC connection in synchronization tasks, mappings, and mapping tasks to connect to sources, targets and lookups. You can write data to a flat file target.
