“USE statement is not supported to switch between databases” when using CData Azure Synapse in ODI Studio

This article provides details for the error: 

'USE statement is not supported to switch between databases. Use a new connection to connect to a different Database.'  


This error is triggered by a badly configured Physical Schema. 



When the Database (Catalog/Work Catalog) specified in the physical schema does not correspond to the value of the Database connection property this will trigger the “Use <database_name>” statement which AzureSynapse does not support: 


To fix this issue the user must set Database (Catalog) and Database (Work Catalog) to the actual name of the database he wants to connect with (specified in the connection string)
