You can create a successful connection to a Neo4j database using a Custom ODBC connection.  However, if you try to Import a database profile for it, this fails with the following error:

"Unable to extract database meta data. null"


This is expected behavior. Neo4j is not a Relational Database, and does not store its metadata in the expected database format.  For this reason, you cannot import a profile for a Neo4j database.  The behavior would be similar for any other database types that are not Relational.


Note that you can still utilize Neo4j, and that you can still create a profile for such a connection, but you must create the profile manually.  It merely cannot be imported.
