The ODBC query service, formerly called Generic ODBC Service, monitors the results of an ODBC query sent to a SQL database.
The data returned by the ODBC query is then evaluated against the regular expressions specified in the service.
When setting up the connection, the username and password must be an SQL user account. A Windows account will not connect.
