Update Authorize.Net Data with a Microsoft Access Linked Table

Update Authorize.Net data by creating a linked table in Microsoft Access with the CData Authorize.Net ODBC Driver.

CData ODBC drivers connect your data to any database management tool that supports Open Database Connectivity (ODBC). This includes many of the most popular productivity tools, adding new capabilities for document sharing and collaboration. Using the CData ODBC driver for Authorize.Net, you can update live Authorize.Net data in Microsoft Access; for example, you can make updates that can be immediately seen by other users.

Connect to Authorize.Net as an ODBC Data Source

If you have not already, first specify connection properties in an ODBC DSN (data source name). This is the last step of the driver installation. You can use the Microsoft ODBC Data Source Administrator to create and configure ODBC DSNs.

You can obtain the necessary connection properties on the Security Settings -> General Settings page after logging into your Merchant Account.

  • UseSandbox: The Authorize.Net API to be used to process transactions. If you are using a production account, this property can be left blank. If you are using a developer test account, set this to 'TRUE'.
  • LoginID: The API login Id associated with your payment gateway account. This property is used to authenticate that you are authorized to submit website transactions. Note that this value is not the same as the login Id that you use to log in to the Merchant Interface.
  • TransactionKey: The transaction key associated with your payment gateway account. This property is used to authenticate that you are authorized to submit website transactions.

Create a Linked Table to SettledBatchList Data

Follow the steps below to create a linked table, which enables you to access live SettledBatchList data.

  1. On the External Data tab in Access, click ODBC Database.
  2. Select the option to link to the data source. A linked table will enable you to read from and write data to the SettledBatchList table.
  3. Select the CData Authorize.Net data source from the Machine Data Source tab.

  4. Select the SettledBatchList table. For more information on this table, see the "Data Model" chapter in the help documentation.
  5. Double-click the linked table to make edits. The linked table will always have up-to-date data and any changes will be reflected back to the underlying table.
