progress_sa is a SQLAlchemy dialect that can be used to read OpenEdge 10 (aka Progress) databases over ODBC.
This dialect was written to do some simple reporting only. It has not been tested with write operations.
The Progress ODBC drivers come from DataDirect and return UTF-8 by default or UCS-2. To work properly with these drivers, pyodbc needs to be compiled with the -fshort-wchar option and a small patch (included in the source distribution) that asks the DataDirect ODBC driver for UCS-2.
- Abort on unpatched pyodbc.
- Rename get_table_names() for newer SQLAlchemy.
