    Is it necessary to always have ODBC drivers?

    ODBC drivers are only necessary for using Access reports or Image Server. Is that correct?


    Yes, that's correct. Prepackaged reports (Reports.mdb) and ImageServer both use an ODBC connection to communicate with the Voyager database. If you are not using either of these modules on a particular workstation, you do not need to install ODBC drivers.

    Additional Information

    ODBC driver packages are available on the Ex Libris FTP server ( See FTP Passwords for voyager, odbc, preview, and patch users for odbc user password.

    See Installation and Configuration of ODBC for Voyager for step-by-step instructions for installing
