ODBC Administrator is a 32-bit utility in the Mac OS X operating system for administering ODBC, which enables interaction with ODBC-compliant data sources. Features include connection pooling, trace log creation, and ODBC driver management, among other administration features.

Although Apple started including the underlying iODBC libraries in Mac OS X "Jaguar" (10.2.x),[1] and has continued to do so through at least macOS Big Sur (11.2.x),[2] Apple only included their ODBC Administrator through Mac OS X "Leopard" (10.5.x), and temporarily made it available as a separate download (since removed) for Mac OS X "Snow Leopard" (10.6.x).

Alternatives to Apple's 32-bit ODBC Administrator include the free and open source 32-bit and 64-bit iODBC Administrator included with the iODBC SDK, which is available for all extant versions of Mac OS X (10.0.x through 11.2.x).[3]
