ODBC Driver for eDirectory

ODBC Driver for eDirectory™ provides you with the ability to perform SQL calls to Novell eDirectory. You can create reports showing user accounts, group memberships, and account balances contained in your directory, using standard tools such as Crystal Reports* and Microsoft* Excel.

In developing applications that use the ODBC Driver for eDirectory, you can use eDirectory just as any other ODBC data source, such as Oracle* or Sybase*. You can also use JDBC*, using the JDBC:ODBC bridging technology.
