Open Database Connectivity (ODBC)
Microsoft has an interface for accessing data in a variety of different databases called Open Database Connectivity (ODBC). A description of an eDiscovery application may refer to its ability to access SQL and other databases using an ODBC driver. With ODBC, administrators can access and edit data from multiple databases in different formats. Keep this in mind when dealing with requests for the production of databases that are not in familiar formats such as the MS Access .mdb format.
