Connect to Google Ad Manager as an ODBC data source in PyCharm using the CData ODBC Driver for Google Ad Manager.

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 Google Ad Manager 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 Google Ad Manager 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.

Connect to Google Ad Manager

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.

Google Ads Manager uses the OAuth authentication standard. You can authorize the data provider to access Google Ads Manager as an individual user or with a service account that you create in the Google APIs Console. See the Getting Started section in the data provider help documentation for an authentication guide.

Below is the syntax for a DSN:

[CData GoogleAdsManager Source] Driver = CData ODBC Driver for Google Ad Manager Description = My Description

Execute SQL to Google Ad Manager

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 GoogleAdsManager};') cursor = cnxn.cursor() cursor.execute("SELECT Id, Name FROM Orders WHERE Id = '2112976978'") rows = cursor.fetchall() for row in rows: print(row.Id, row.Name)

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