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.
  • The ODBC driver does not currently support the PUT or GET command and, therefore, cannot be used to upload or download files for data loading/unloading. Use SnowSQL (CLI Client) or the JDBC Driver instead.
