The .NET Framework Data Provider for ODBC (Odbc) uses the native ODBC Driver Manager (DM) to enable data access. The ODBC data provider supports both local and distributed transactions. For distributed transactions, the ODBC data provider, by default, automatically enlists in a transaction and obtains transaction details from Windows Component Services.
.NET Framework Data Provider for ODBC classes are located in the System.Data.Odbc namespace.
The following code example shows how to include the System.Data.Odbc namespace in your applications.
