ODBC PowerPack v1.1.4 Released

What’s New

In this version we focused on many bug fixes. Among them most important bug was limitation of only 2000 characters for SQL Query using OPENQUERY statement. Now you can use up to 8000 characters for OPENQUERY and if that’s not enough use EXEC AT statement to send query to Data Gateway. We also made many improvements with our Salesforce Driver so now you can use it along with Data Gateway or any other Reporting / ETL tools.
