The clients include Microsoft Excel, Microsoft Power BI, Microsoft Power Query, Microsoft Word and Microsoft Outlook. Web-based clients include Invantive Cloud, Invantive Bridge Online as OData proxy, Invantive App Online for interactive apps, Online SQL Editor for query execution and Invantive Data Access Point as extended proxy.

The SQL driver for Outlook supports partitioning: data from multiple companies are all listed together in one table. The value of the column indicates which company the data belongs to.

An introduction into the concepts of Invantive SQL such as databases, data containers and partitioning can be found in the Invantive SQL grammar.

The configuration can be changed using various attributes during log on and use. A full list of configuration options is listed in the driver attributes.

The catalog name is used to compose the full qualified name of an object like a table or view. The schema name is used to compose the full qualified name of an object like a table or view. On Outlook the comparison of two texts is case sensitive by default.
