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

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


Create a Profile for the ODBC Driver for Snapchat 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 Snapchat Ads. In the Database Painter, you can use wizards and the UI to work with Snapchat Ads data.

  1. If you have not already done so, create an ODBC DSN for Snapchat Ads. The DSN contains the connection properties required to connect to Snapchat 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:

    You will need to create an OAuth application to connect to Snapchat Ads. See the online Help documentation for an authentication guide.

    Additionally, you can optionally set AccountId to provide a default Account ID (meaning it won't need to be manually provided in the WHERE clause). If the AccountId is not specified, the first account in the Accounts view is used.

    See the help documentation for a guide to creating a Snapchat 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 Snapchat 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 Snapchat 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 Snapchat Ads data into a DataWindow. You can add the following code to the open method:

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