The IBMDA400 driver is shipped with the system hardware and software on your IBM i Access for Windows Media, and is installed through the IBM i Access for Windows setup program.

If you don't have media, you can order it from IBM or download it from ESS (if you have ESS rights):

Hello plusone3055
How do you install?

I have downloaded the files for IBM Data Server Client Packages (10.5.*, All platforms) .

I have found the exe file called db2cli, and I have run the command at the command prompt, "db2cli install -setup".

But there is no new ODBC connections.

Just a quick note:

IBMDA400 isn't an ODBC driver.  It is an OLEDB provider.  If you are really looking for IBMDA400, it isn't included in the IBM Data Server Client Packages that you downloaded.  

The package that you downloaded can only be used to access IBM i DB2 if you have a licensed copy of DB2 Connect installed.  It also only supports a subset of IBM i DB2 features - it is definitely not the preferred data access package for IBM i DB2.

I'm guessing that you want to do something like this:

If so, I suggest that you obtain the data providers that are provided with the IBM i - from the IBM i Access for Windows installation media.
