Reporting from TM1 – Part3 : ODBC

ODBC connections might be a trouble when you are dealing with both Cognos BI and TM1;

you will most probably need 32-bit version of the ODBC Administration Tool (odbcad32.exe) and the 64-bit version.

You will need 64-bit version for your 64-bit TM1 installation, which you can find under \Windows\System32 directory.

And you might need 32-bit version for your BI to integrate it with any 3rd party data sources (not for TM1, but TM1 will never be enough as a data source, so eventually you will need to use other sources with your TM1 cubes) which you can find under  \Windows\SysWow64 directory.
