    I'm able to connect with no issues for both 'Microsoft SQL Server 2005 and 2008'

    from BIP->Administration>JDBC>Add Data Source

    I dont think you need ODBC for this since this based on JDBC.

    Just in case make sure you have sqljdbc.jar file in \FMW\Oracle_BI1\jdbc\lib
    FYI: sqljdbc.jar is existing at DAC folder in my local but not in above location

    If helps pls mark

    You can use any of the data source type offered by the app.
    JDBC or JNDI or FIle or OLAP
    There is no ODBC type (the BIP is a Java application and don't regularly use ODBC drivers, except if you use JDBC-ODBC bridge for some databases!)

    As for JDBC, it is the hyperion used for MSSQL server, with the most complete (with named instance and specific port) syntax as follows


    It works for 2005 and 2008 (and 2012 ? not tested yet)
