Custom ODBC Data Sources

You may configure additional data sources on your computer, or customize the data sources that are configured by CIMPLICITY installation. However, you must observe the following restrictions:

Use only supported ODBC drivers. Other drivers may not meet the data requirements of CIMPLICITY software.

Because CIMPLICITY runs as a service, it must use system data sources.

Remember that data sources are not part of your CIMPLICITY project, and will not automatically follow a project that is taken to a different node.

Be aware of any driver-specific restrictions (below) which may apply.
