SQL*XL - Editions
SQL*XL editions and version history.

There are two editions of SQL*XL. SQL*XL Standard and SQL*XL Universal. The Universal edition can connect to any database type and using any driver (if supported). The Standard edition is restricted to use Oracle databases through the driver OO4O (this is a free driver by Oracle which is part of the Oracle Home software). The Universal edition can use Microsoft's ADO technology which includes XML features and ODBC, OLE DB support. Many more advanced techniques will only be available in the Universal edition.

For a detailed account of the changes to each release of the SQL*XL software I refer to the SQL*XL release log.
