Connect to Bing Search Results in DBArtisan

Use wizards in DBArtisan to configure Bing Search results as a data source.

The CData ODBC Driver for Bing Search seamlessly integrates Bing Search results into database management tools like DBArtisan by enabling you to access Bing Search results as a database. This article shows how to create an data source for Bing Search in DBArtisan and execute queries. You can then edit data visually and execute standard SQL.

Integrate Bing Search Results into DBArtisan Projects

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.

To connect to Bing, set the ApiKey connection property. To obtain the API key, sign into Microsoft Cognitive Services and register for the Bing Search APIs.

Two API keys are then generated; select either one.

When querying tables, the SearchTerms parameter must be supplied in the WHERE clause.

You can then follow the steps below to register Bing Search results as a database instance in your project:

  1. In DBArtisan, click Data Source -> Register Datasource.
  2. Select Generic ODBC.
  3. Enter a name for the data source and select the DSN.
  4. Finish the wizard to connect to Bing Search results. Bing Search entities are displayed in the Datasource Explorer.

You can now work with Bing Search results as you work with any other database. See the driver help documentation for more information on the queries supported by the Bing Search API.
