MySQL Connector/ODBC (Connector ODBC or MyODBC)

MySQL Connector/ODBC (sometimes called just Connector/ODBC or MyODBC) is a driver for connecting to a MySQL database server through the Open Database Connectivity (ODBC) application program interface (API), which is the standard means of connecting to any database. Users can connect from within common applications and programming environments, such as Microsoft Access or Excel or Borland Delphi.

MyODBC is available for most major operating systems, including Windows, Unix, Linux, Solaris, AIX, and OS X either under the free software/open source GNU General Public License (GPL) or under a commercial license.
