ETL+ Connection to ODBC
ODBC driver to use in ETL+:
Have your source system’s ODBC driver on the same Windows computer where ETL+ is ( or is going to be installed).
Create or use an ODBC System DSN (instead of User DSN) to your source system
The ODBC driver must have the same 32/64bit build as ETL+
To retain OAuth credentials: Look for your ODBC documentation/configuration on how to retain the OAuth credentials. Ex.: Enter the following in CData’s ODBCs → Advanced/Misc/Other:
If you haven’t installed ETL+ yet: ETL+ Deployment Instructions.
Login to ETL+ (help here).
Adding a new ODBC source to ETL+: On ETL page’s left panel, click
Maintaining an ODBC source on ETL+: On ETL page’s left panel, right-click the ODBC source →
ODBC Data Sourcespage, select the correct ODBC Name from the list.
Can’t find your ODBC? Be sure ETL+ and the ODBC have the same 32/64bit build.
ODBC requiring credentials:
double-click the ODBC name→
You might leave the Alias as is, or customize it.
You’ll get back to the ETL page and see tables under the new ODBC source on the left panel.
Mapping and Loading Tables
To view tables available from your ODBC source on the left panel, right-click the ODBC source →
To map an ODBC table to your data warehouse (ETL Objects),
double-click its nameon the left panel, or right-click on it →
You’ll now see the table added/mapped to the center panel (ETL Objects).
To preview its data, right-click the table on the center panel →
To load its data to the data warehouse, right-click the table on the center panel →
You might use the right panel (ETL SQL Statement) to customize the SQL statement. In that case, you must use the ODBC driver’s SQL syntax.
Logicon (top right) to view data load results. Log page help here.
Schedule the Data Load
On the ETL main page, click
Job(top right icon on the center panel).
Select a Job or create a new one to load your ODBC source data on a schedule (help here) → on the right panel, be sure the ODBC source tables to load have their boxes checked and in the desired load order.
To load them now, click the
Run Job Now(play icon) on the left panel for the desired Job.
To schedule the data load:
WTS Settings-> enter the WTS parameters →
This step might require you to run ETL+ app as “Run as administrator” in Windows.
After ETL+ has loaded your ODBC source tables, this is to check if the data extraction process finished successfully and row count per extracted table matches with your ODBC source tables.

On the ETL main page, click the top-right
Logicon. Log page help here.
Scroll down on the log page and double-check that no table load failed, and that the row count matches with the source ODBC tables. Following is an example highlighting two tables from a sample ODBC database and their loaded row count.
