This article will walk through connecting to Acumatica using the Data Explorer.

Connecting to Acumatica Data Using Data Explorer

      For example: https://acumatica.com/entity/Default/17.200.001/

    See the Getting Started guide in the CData driver documentation for more information.

  5. Back in the Data Explorer, expand the tables for the connection.
