Teradata support (ODBC)

Applies to: 8.x versions, Article available also for: 9.x (current), 7.x
You are looking at documentation for an older release.
Switch to the documentation for Dataedo 9.x (current).

Teradata is currently not officially supported. Connection is possible with generic ODBC driver. Metadata returned depends on driver version and provider.

We have tested and successfully connected to and imported metadata from Teradata with ODBC drivers listed below. It is highly likely it will work with other drivers as well.

ODBC version: 16.20 64-bit
