Connect to Excel Online Data in RazorSQL

Connect to Excel Online from wizards and query Excel Online data from the GUI in the RazorSQL database management tool.

The CData JDBC Driver for Excel Online enables standards-based access from third-party tools, from wizards in IDEs to data management and analysis tools. This article shows how to connect to Excel Online using wizards in RazorSQL.

Create a JDBC Data Source for Excel Online Data

  1. Open the RazorSQL application and, in the Connections menu, select Add Connection Profile -> Other -> JDBC.
  2. In the Connection Wizard that appears, set the following properties:
    • Driver Location: Set this property to the path to the lib subfolder in the installation directory.
    • Driver Class: Set the driver class to cdata.jdbc.excelonline.ExcelOnlineDriver.
    • Username: Enter the username. (This property can also be set in the JDBC URL.)
    • Password: Enter the password. (This property can also be set in the JDBC URL.)
    • JDBC URL: Enter connection parameters. The JDBC URL begins with jdbc:excelonline: and is followed by a semicolon-separated list of connection properties.

      You can connect to a workbook by providing authentication to Excel Online and then setting the following properties:

      • Workbook: Set this to the name or Id of the workbook.

        If you want to view a list of information about the available workbooks, execute a query to the Workbooks view after you authenticate.

      • UseSandbox: Set this to true if you are connecting to a workbook in a sandbox account. Otherwise, leave this blank to connect to a production account.

      You use the OAuth authentication standard to authenticate to Excel Online. See the Getting Started section in the help documentation for a guide. Getting Started also guides you through executing SQL to worksheets and ranges.
