Integration Manager comes with a source adapter that reads source data from text and ODBC sources. To retrieve data from these sources, it issues queries, which you set up when you add a text or ODBC source.
Integration Manager can issue queries for text sources (see Adding text sources), simple ODBC sources (see Adding simple ODBC sources), and advanced ODBC sources (see Using advanced ODBC source queries).
Several of the following topics in this part of the documentation describe how to create text and simple ODBC sources. Using advanced ODBC source queries describes advanced ODBC sources.
