HRC = Historical Reports Client
You don't really need it to get a DB conncection of course, but it does include the ODBC drivers which you'd have to obtain elsewhere and install to get connected. So it's easier if you do - and also you'd want to test the report that you create with the HRC client so that other people can use it... again, easier if you have HRC installed.
