Connect to Tally Data from PowerBuilder





Tally ODBC Driver

Tally 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Tally にデータ連携。

Tally データにデータベースと同感覚でアクセスして、Tally のSalesOrders、PurchaseOrders、Accounts 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 Tally to connect to Tally data and execute queries in PowerBuilder.

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


Create a Profile for the ODBC Driver for Tally

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

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

    Set the following connection properties to connect to Tally Instance:

    • Url: Set this to the URL for your Tally instance. For example: http://localhost:9000.
    See the help documentation for a guide to creating a Tally 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 Tally DSN in the Data Source menu.
  5. To view and modify a table, right-click a table and then click Edit Data -> Grid.

Using Tally 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 Tally data into a DataWindow. You can add the following code to the open method:

SQLCA.DBMS = "ODBC" SQLCA.DBParm = "ConnectString='DSN=CData Tally Source'" CONNECT USING SQLCA; dw_company.SetTransObject(SQLCA); dw_company.Retrieve();
