Connect to Facebook Ads Data from PowerBuilder





Facebook Ads ODBC Driver

Facebook Ads ODBC Driver を使って、ODBC 接続をサポートするあらゆるアプリケーション・ツールからFacebook Ads にデータ連携。

Facebook Ads データにデータベースと同感覚でアクセスして、Facebook Ads データに使い慣れたODBC インターフェースで双方向連携。

This article demonstrates how to use the CData ODBC Driver for Facebook Ads to connect to Facebook Ads data and execute queries in PowerBuilder.

The CData ODBC Driver for Facebook Ads can be used from any platform or development technology that supports ODBC, including Sybase PowerBuilder. This article shows how to connect to Facebook Ads data and execute queries from the Database Painter and controls such as the DataWindow.


Create a Profile for the ODBC Driver for Facebook Ads

Follow the steps below to use the Database Painter tool to create a database profile based on an ODBC DSN (data source name) for Facebook Ads. In the Database Painter, you can use wizards and the UI to work with Facebook Ads data.

  1. If you have not already done so, create an ODBC DSN for Facebook Ads. The DSN contains the connection properties required to connect to Facebook Ads data. You can use the Microsoft ODBC Data Source Administrator to create and configure DSNs. This is the last step of installing the driver. Required connection properties are the following:

    Most tables require user authentication as well as application authentication. Facebook uses the OAuth authentication standard. To authenticate to Facebook, you can use the embedded OAuthClientId, OAuthClientSecret, and CallbackURL or you can obtain your own by registering an app with Facebook.

    See the Getting Started chapter of the help documentation for a guide to using OAuth.

    See the help documentation for a guide to creating a Facebook Ads DSN.
  2. In PowerBuilder, click Tools -> Database Painter.
  3. In the Objects window in the Database Painter, right-click the ODBC node and click New Profile.
  4. On the Connection tab, enter a name for the profile and select the Facebook Ads DSN in the Data Source menu.
  5. To view and modify a table, right-click a table and then click Edit Data -> Grid.

Using Facebook Ads Data with PowerBuilder Controls

You can use standard PowerBuilder objects to connect to ODBC data sources and execute queries. The following example shows how to retrieve Facebook Ads data into a DataWindow. You can add the following code to the open method:

SQLCA.DBMS = "ODBC" SQLCA.DBParm = "ConnectString='DSN=CData Facebook Ads Source'" CONNECT USING SQLCA; dw_adaccounts.SetTransObject(SQLCA); dw_adaccounts.Retrieve();
