Downloading the ODBC Driver

The installer for the Snowflake ODBC driver is distributed through Snowflake’s Client Driver Repository.

Before downloading the driver, you may want to first verify the version of the driver you are currently using. To verify your driver version, connect to Snowflake through a client application that uses the driver and check the version. If the application supports executing SQL queries, you can call the CURRENT_CLIENT function.

  • TGZ (TAR file compressed using .GZIP)

  • RPM
