SQL Native Driver for SQL 2014


Trying to restore our ERP software DB to SQL Server 2014 from SQL Server 2008.

Getting a ODBC Driver version error. My understanding is that there isn't a native client 12, only a 11?

The system calls the correct driver from a flat file by using the following command.
dbconnstr=DRIVER={SQL Server Native Client 11.0}

Any suggestions.
