Driver and data source configuration

Configure a data source depending on the database environment. Decide between using an ODBC and JDBC driver. Then, find the configuration instructions based on your operating system and database. You can configure data sources using the appropriate dialog box in the Database Explorer app. Configure an ODBC data source using the ODBC Data Source Administrator dialog box. Configure a JDBC data source using the JDBC Data Source Configuration dialog box or the command line.

For high-level information about using Database Toolbox™, see Access Relational Database Data in MATLAB. To get started by exploring data visually, use the Database Explorer app.
