Driver feature support matrix for Microsoft SQL Server
If you're planning to use a feature in Microsoft SQL Server, it might not be available in all drivers. Some reasons a feature might not be in a particular driver include:
- The feature doesn't apply to the driver technology.
- The feature is new and hasn't been implemented across all drivers yet.
- The feature isn't in demand in a particular driver.
- Other features are being implemented first.
We wish all drivers supported every feature and spend effort to ensure feature parity across drivers. However that isn't always possible. To help you choose the appropriate driver for your needs, here's a list of popular features and the drivers that implement them.
1 Since these drivers rely on the Microsoft ODBC Driver for SQL Server, a version of that driver that supports the feature must also be used.
