.Net Connection (ADO/ODBC/OleDB) SAP HANA

Former Member

I am trying to build a VB.Net program to connect to an SAP HANA Server. I have installed SAP HANA Client (both 32-bit and 64-bit) and I am running on a 64-bit Windows 7 OS.

I created a System DSN and wrote a program in VB.Net to access the ODBC Connection and that is failing.

According to page 782 of the SAP HANA Developer Guide (, when you install the SAP HANA Client, the "SAP.Data.HANA" libraries should be installed - but I am not able to see any of these when I try to add a reference in VB.Net.

It would be great if someone with experience of connecting from .Net to SAP HANA could please share the correct approach.

I just want to connect to a certain schema and run some INSERT and SELECT commands on the HANA Database for the moment.

Thanks in advance for your help,

the .net provider for hana is only available starting SP08, or revision 80 of the database. Did you install client for revision 80?
