Hi Philip,

Thank you for your help.

It is well known observation that the level of documentation incompleteness is
inversely proportional to the number of people who used it :-)

It looks like more people started to use now, so they noticed some

First, I would like to say that the new information is very helpful, especially
those snapshots for "ODBC Driver Add/Setup", but also "Generic ODBC driver
Setup" as well.

One thing I did not understand how I can get into "Generic ODBC driver
Setup" window? What is the sequence of clicks that leads me into that
window? I tried to get it by myself and could not find the way.

However, my most important remark is about "Important: using FreeTDS with
iODBC" line on the web page:

It seems to me that this small section is incorrect.

If you look inside the file, it already contains that option
at the line 79:

79 ./configure --disable-apps --disable-server --disable-pool --with-iodbc=/tmp/freetdsbuild --enable-odbc-wide

Second, there is no explanation how to install the packages
libiodbc-devel or libiodbc2-dev

I spent quite a bit of time trying to accomplish it until MySQL people told me
the command that worked very well for my CentOS 6.6:

yum install libiodbc libiodbc-devel

After I ran it the drivers were installed:

Also I was able to do data migration, but I ran WB on Windows, not on Linux.
Nevertheless I am planning to do that from Linux side once I master
Windows version.

Thanks again for your help and for the good tool.

Best regards,

Jacob Nikom
