Using the CData ODBC Driver for Amazon Marketplace in PyCharm

Connect to Amazon Marketplace as an ODBC data source in PyCharm using the CData ODBC Driver for Amazon Marketplace.

The CData ODBC Drivers can be used in any environment that supports loading an ODBC Driver. In this tutorial we will explore using the CData ODBC Driver for Amazon Marketplace from within PyCharm. Included are steps for adding the CData ODBC Driver as a data source, as well as basic PyCharm code to query the data source and display results.

To begin, this tutorial will assume that you have already installed the CData ODBC Driver for Amazon Marketplace as well as PyCharm.

Add Pyodbc to the Project

Follow the steps below to add the pyodbc module to your project.

  1. Click File -> Settings to open the project settings window.
  2. Click Project Interpreter from the Project: YourProjectName menu.
  3. To add pyodbc, click the + button and enter pyodbc.
  4. Click Install Package to install pyodbc.

Connect to Amazon Marketplace

You can now connect with an ODBC connection string or a DSN. See the Getting Started section in the CData driver documentation for a guide to creating a DSN on your OS.

To connect to the Amazon Marketplace Webservice (MWS), AWSAccessKeyId, MWSAuthToken, AWSSecretKey and SellerId are required. You can optionally set the Marketplace property. For more information on obtaining values for these properties, refer to the Help documentation.

Below is the syntax for a DSN:

[CData AmazonMarketplace Source] Driver = CData ODBC Driver for Amazon Marketplace Description = My Description AWS Access Key Id = myAWSAccessKeyId AWS Secret Key = myAWSSecretKey MWS Auth Token = myMWSAuthToken Seller Id = mySellerId Marketplace = United States

Execute SQL to Amazon Marketplace

Instantiate a Cursor and use the execute method of the Cursor class to execute any SQL statement.

import pyodbc cnxn = pyodbc.connect('DRIVER={CData ODBC Driver for AmazonMarketplace};AWS Access Key Id = myAWSAccessKeyId;AWS Secret Key = myAWSSecretKey;MWS Auth Token = myMWSAuthToken;Seller Id = mySellerId;Marketplace = United States;') cursor = cnxn.cursor() cursor.execute("SELECT AmazonOrderId, OrderStatus FROM Orders WHERE IsReplacementOrder = 'True'") rows = cursor.fetchall() for row in rows: print(row.AmazonOrderId, row.OrderStatus)

After connecting to Amazon Marketplace in PyCharm using the CData ODBC Driver, you will be able to build Python apps with access to Amazon Marketplace data as if it were a standard database.
