Accessing Denodo from Mac OS clients

I'm looking for recommendations on the best way to allow Mac Os clients access to Denodo using tools like Excel and Access. What is considered the preferred approach?

Hi, The recommended connection to Denodo is using the JDBC driver as it provides better performance. If you are unable to use the JDBC driver then you can use either the Excel or the Access tools to connect to Denodo and access the data. To know more about the connection through ODBC drivers, refer to[ "Access Through ODBC"](https://community.denodo.com/docs/html/browse/6.0/vdp/developer/access_through_odbc/access_through_odbc#access-through-odbc) of the Virtual DataPort Developer Guide. Hope this Helps.

Denodo Team, I appreciate the respone. What i'm struggling with is with Excel 2016 for Mac OS does not have the same ODBC or External connectivity options as Excel 2016 on Windows. Perhaps, i may be missing something in Excel, but all i can see are options to connect to MSFT SQL Server and authorized ODBC drivers. Link to MSFT URL on authorized drivers: https://support.office.com/en-us/article/ODBC-drivers-that-are-compatible-with-Excel-for-Mac-9fa6bc7f-d19e-4f7f-9be4-92e85c77d712?ui=en-US&rs=en-US&ad=US Are you referring to the article which discusses creating ODBC drivers on Linux/Unix? If so, I'm interested in hearing how your clients are doing this in an enterprise. Specifically, how are they packaging and deploying the drivers?

Hi, I have tried to connect to Excel 2016 from Denodo in the Windows environment and it works perfectly. I haven't tested it in the Mac OS environment. As to your question about creating ODBC drivers on Linux/Unix, Denodo Platform comes with the ODBC drivers that can be installed in the Linux/Unix environment. To know more about how to install ODBC drivers in Linux refer to[ " Install the ODBC Driver on Linux "](https://community.denodo.com/docs/html/browse/6.0/vdp/developer/access_through_odbc/configuration_of_the_odbc_driver_in_linux_and_other_unix/install_the_odbc_driver_on_linux#install-the-odbc-driver-on-linux) of the Virtual DataPort Developer Guide. Hope this Helps.

Denodo Team, I appreciate the response and suggestion and have read the documentation. However, I would like some guideance on how Denodo or it's clients support macs in an enterprise. While i can configure my own mac, it's not something i can send in an email to non IT mac users.
