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:
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?
