Is it possible to connect to MySQL Database from MicroStrategy? How, please? The MySQL database connection type seems to be not unavailable from the list. Thanks!

RE: Connect to MySQL

I have created a MSTR project with MySQL WH (5.0.6 with MyISAM tables) with no problems at all.
ODBC Driver is 3.51.06 (I used a previous version and it worked anyway) - make sure that "Don't' optimize column width" and "Return Matching Rows" options are checked

RE: Connect to MySQL

BTW - performance on small intel boxes are much better than any other DB I have used - SQLSrv, SyBase, Oracle etc.
