Re: Download data without installing ODBC

Hi Ceel,

It is possible to use the ODBC driver without installing the driver package.
However, the driver needs to be registered in the system anyway. Though, it can be unregistered after.

This is the only way I can think of.
Registering a driver is a required step. Otherwise the driver manager won't be able to find it.

To do this you need to the following steps:

1. download a non-install zip driver package
2. unpack it into a directory of your choice
3. use myodbc-installer.exe utility to register a driver at a custom location
(run it without parameters to get the examples of usage)
4. use myodbc-installer.exe to create a data source
5. do whatever you wanted to do in Excel
6. remove the data source and the driver using myodbc-installer.exe
