The ODBC source allows you to create your create a custom query against a SQL Server database and use the returned set of data as source data for pasTransfer.

 

ODBC Query Page

 

The ODBC Query Page allows a user to create, edit and select a Data Source Name (DSN) for connection to an ODBC data source, and write a custom query for exporting data from the database.

oConnection Timeout:  The amount of time to spend attempting to make a connection to the database.  The default time is 30 seconds.

oCommand Timeout:  The amount of time to spend attempting to complete the commands or transaction before disconnecting.  It is advised to use a higher command timeout if you are inserting a lot of data or working with a slow connection.

oUse Transactions:  A transaction is a single unit of work.  Enabling transactions allows for an all-or-nothing insert.  If any lines encounter a problem, the transaction will roll back and all modifications will be erased.  If a transaction is successful, all modifications were successful and become a permanent part of the database.
