To connect to MySQL Community Edition you must download from Oracle the MySQL ODBC 5.1 Driver and install it onto your computer. Then, create a database connection artifact using this driver. For guidance, see the documentation topic Connections > Connect to Databases.
I’m a little confused about your mention of Toad. Expressor does not connect to Toad; it connects directly to the database.
Hi John - I believe ericherrera was trying to use the provided QlikView Expressor ODBC Data Direct drivers from Toad. I believe he might have thought that QlikView Expressor was some data source that could be accessed via ODBC drivers.
Eric - is that true?
If so - QlikView Expressor comes with a variety of ODBC drivers that are used to access data from the QlikView Expressor Studio / Desktop product, not from other products such as Toad.
Please let us know.
