To access any database via ODBC, you need an ODBC driver for this

Usually, you also need an ODBC manager (one comes with Windows, I assume).

Finally, you need a Python-ODBC bridge and a Zope database adapter.
I think, under Windows, the ActiveState Python comes with a
Python-ODBC bridge.

There used to be a "ZODBCDA" database adapter as Zope product.
However, maintenance by "zope.com" stopped and some interested
people took it over. Maybe, you try to search for it.
Or you pay the XXX Euro and buy the eGenix "mxZODBDA", as suggested
by Andreas.
