Connect to Access Data in RazorSQL

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

The CData JDBC Driver for Access 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 Access using wizards in RazorSQL.

Create a JDBC Data Source for Access 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.access.AccessDriver.
    • 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:access: and is followed by a semicolon-separated list of connection properties.

      To connect, set the DataSource property to the path to the Access database.

      A typical JDBC URL is the following:

      jdbc:access:DataSource=C:\MyDB.accdb;
  3. To connect, set the DataSource property to the path to the Access database.

Query Access Data and Select Tables

After establishing a connection, the wizard will close and the connection will be available in the connections panel. You can then query the tables.
