    :
    It's a programming interface, that enables you to connect to several different database management systems, using the same set of function calls. ODBC in its turn calls the same function from the appropriate database driver.
    In other words you wouldn't have to change your code, if you change DBMS from SQL Server to i.e Oracle. (Generally speaking that is)
