ODBC Driver

Snowflake provides an ODBC driver for connecting to Snowflake using ODBC-based client applications. Snowflake provides platform-specific versions of the driver for download (from the Snowflake web interface) for the following platforms:

Platform Supported Versions
Microsoft Windows (32-bit and 64-bit)
  • Windows 7 or higher
  • Windows Server 2008 R2 or higher
Mac OS
  • OS X v10.12 or higher
Linux (64-bit)
  • CentOS 6 or higher
  • Ubuntu 14 or higher


  • The ODBC driver has different prerequisites depending on the platform where it is installed. For details, see the individual installation and configuration instructions for each platform.

  • Version 2.17.5 and higher of the ODBC driver supports uploading/downloading local data files on a client machine to/from an internal (i.e. Snowflake) stage using the PUT/GET commands.

    Currently, this support is not available to Snowflake accounts hosted on the Microsoft Azure cloud platform. Use SnowSQL (CLI Client) or the JDBC Driver instead.
