ODBC (Client Version: 9.03.04)

You can use either the ANSI 32-bit driver or the Unicode® ODBC driver. If using the ODBC connection for spatial data, use the Unicode® ODBC driver.

The driver does not support certain available JSONb query operators (?,?|,?&). For more information, see the PostgreSQL documentation.


Due to PostgreSQL database limitations, only two tables can be combined with the Union In-DB Tool that contain completely different column names. Three or more tables will produce an error.
