         Open DataBase Connectivity (WOSA, DB, API)

From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (30 December 2018) :

  Open DataBase Connectivity
      (ODBC) A standard for accessing
     different database systems.  There are interfaces for
     Visual Basic, Visual C++, SQL and the ODBC driver pack
     contains drivers for the Access, Paradox, dBase, Text,
     Excel and Btrieve databases.
     An application can submit statements to ODBC using the ODBC
     flavor of SQL.  ODBC then translates these to whatever flavor
     the database understands.
     ODBC 1.0 was released in September 1992.
     ODBC is based on Call-Level Interface and was defined by the
     SQL Access Group.  Microsoft was one member of the group
     and was the first company to release a commercial product
     based on its work (under Microsoft Windows) but ODBC is not
     a Microsoft standard (as many people believe).
     ODBC drivers and development tools are available now for
     Microsoft Windows, Unix, OS/2, and Macintosh.
