As of December 1, 2020, Focal Point is retired and repurposed as a reference repository. We value the wealth of knowledge that's been shared here over the years. You'll continue to have access to this treasure trove of knowledge, for search purposes only.

New TIBCO Community Coming Soon
In early summer, TIBCO plans to launch a new community—with a new user experience, enhanced search, and expanded capabilities for member engagement with answers and discussions! In advance of that, the current myibi community will be retired on April 30. We will continue to provide updates here on both the retirement of myibi and the new community launch.

What You Need to Know about Our New Community
We value the wealth of knowledge and engagement shared by community members and hope the new community will continue cultivating networking, knowledge sharing, and discussion.

During the transition period, from April 20th until the new community is launched this summer, myibi users should access the TIBCO WebFOCUS page to engage.

[SOLVED] WebFOCUS MSSQL Adapters - OLE or ODBC?

Up until now we have been using the WebFOCUS Oracle and Netezza adapters.

We are now installing MS SQL Server. We also have a requirement to build WF reports against against MSSQL.

We are now considering if we should use the MSSQL OLE adapter or ODBC.

My DBA's are reviewing which would make the best choice.

Does anyone have any experience in making this choice, or have a preference?

I checked with Mark Nesson and he recommends OLE DB it has more robust functionality.


Thank you for using Focal Point!

Thank you very much for checking with Mark.

I've attended several of Mark's Summit presentations, and could tell that he is a SME on many aspects of the WebFOCUS Reporting Server area.

I'll forward to my DBA's.

Once again many thanks.

Ditto with Mark.

The more native the adapter the better utilisation of the functionality and SQL generated.
