Actual Technologies released today Actual ODBC Driver for SQL Server version 1.1.
In addition to allowing Mac OS X users to connect to Microsoft SQL Server databases, the driver now supports connections to Sybase databases. The Sybase database can reside on a Mac or any other platform supported by Sybase.
The new version also adds support for FileMaker Pro. Users can now build queries for importing data from SQL Server and Sybase databases using File Maker or Microsoft Excel. This is an important step in helping OS X users gain access to enterprise data, on equal standing with their Windows-using counterparts. The driver is available exclusively for the Mac and requires nothing to be installed on the server itself.
