Information design tool (IDT), ODBC driver option missing.

Dear All,

I am trying to create Relation Connection in IDT , but ODBC driver option missing. Please see the screenshot for the steps.

My BO server is running on AIX 6.1 with Oracle Database 11g for CMS and Audit.

Has anyone faced similar problem? Any idea, what could be the reason?

    Thank you everyone for the response.

    I have listed below the steps which has fixed the issue. This may be useful for someone.

    Follow the solution in the below URL to have proper environment in BO administrator user.

    https://scn.sap.com/thread/3404778

    Configure ODBC string in odbc.ini on BO server as per BO installation document.

    Install the oracle odbc client (32 bit and 64 bit both) , configure tnsnames.ora in case of oracle on the PC where IDT is executed. Sql server odbc client was already available.

    Create ODBC connection on the PC where IDT is executed.

    Hi,

    Try to repair your client tools installation, and add all drivers when you have to select them.

    I think that some drivers are missing.
