Connect to SAP Concur Data from PowerBuilder

This article demonstrates how to use the CData ODBC Driver for SAP Concur to connect to SAP Concur data and execute queries in PowerBuilder.

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

Connect to SAP Concur 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.

SAP Concur uses the OAuth 2 authentication standard. You will need to obtain the OAuthClientId and OAuthClientSecret by registering an app with SAP Concur. See the Getting Started section of the help documentation for an authentication guide.

Create a Profile for the ODBC Driver for SAP Concur

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

  1. In PowerBuilder, click Tools -> Database Painter.
  2. In the Objects window in the Database Painter, right-click the ODBC node and click New Profile.
  3. On the Connection tab, enter a name for the profile and select the SAP Concur DSN in the Data Source menu.
  4. To view and modify a table, right-click a table and then click Edit Data -> Grid.

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

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