Update Google Campaign Manager Data with a Microsoft Access Linked Table

Update Google Campaign Manager data by creating a linked table in Microsoft Access with the CData Google Campaign Manager 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 Google Campaign Manager, you can update live Google Campaign Manager data in Microsoft Access; for example, you can make updates that can be immediately seen by other users.

Connect to Google Campaign Manager 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.

Google Campaign Manager uses the OAuth authentication standard. The data provider facilitates OAuth in various ways as described below. The following OAuth flow requires the authenticating user to interact with DoubleClick Campaign Manager, using the browser. You can also use a service account to authenticate.

For authentication guides, see the Getting Started section of the data provider help documentation.

Create a Linked Table to CampaignPerformance Data

Follow the steps below to create a linked table, which enables you to access live CampaignPerformance 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 CampaignPerformance table.
  3. Select the CData Google Campaign Manager data source from the Machine Data Source tab.

  4. Select the CampaignPerformance 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.
