3041606 - Can "Microsoft ODBC Driver 13.1 for SQL Server" be used for SAP Data Services 4.X when using MS SQL Server as associated Data Base?


In SAP Data Services PAM, it shows "MS SQL Server Native Client" is the only "ODBC Client" supported by DS. For example, for SQL Server 2016, you will need "MS SQL Server Native Client 11", and for SQL Server 2019, "MS SQL Server Native Client 17" will be the one.

Hence, you may wonder if such as "Microsoft ODBC Driver 13.1 for SQL Server" can be used.
