Can somebody please provide detailed instructions on how to connect ArcGIS Desktop to a MySQL database?  I've seen other threads where people say they've done it.  I have tried it myself, downloaded the ODBC driver, but have not been able to get it to work.

Hi Bob,

I have attached a document that outlines the following:

1.  Download and install the driver.

2.  Add the ODBC driver as a data source on the machine.

3.  Connect to the MySQL database in ArcCatalog.

Here are some relevant links:

MySQL ODBC Driver download (5.2.x)
MySQL :: Download Connector/ODBC

Is this workflow still relevant in ArcCatalog 10.7.x?  I had an OLE DB connection that still works in 10.5.x, but the MySQL tables do not show up in ArcCatalog 10.7.x when using the same drivers and connection parameters.

I'm using arc catalog 10.8 and it works, but with different version of odbc, see this  MySQL :: Supported Platforms: MySQL Database
