mxODBC is a commercially supported Python extension package that provides a Python Database API 2.0 compliant interface to ODBC capable database drivers and managers.
In addition to the capabilities provided through the standard Python DB API 2.0 it also gives access to a rich set of catalog methods which allow you to scan the database for tables, procedures, etc. as well as many features needed in professional software development. See the mxODBC features list for a full list.

On Unix, mxODBC includes subpackages for the ODBC managers iODBC, unixODBC and the DataDirect ODBC manager. On Windows, mxODBC supports the standard MS ODBC manager.
