Connect to EDGAR Online Data in DBArtisan

Use wizards in DBArtisan to configure EDGAR Online data as a data source.

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

Integrate EDGAR Online Data 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.

  1. Navigate to https://developer.edgar-online.com/ and create an account.
  2. Register a new application and retrieve the AppKey. You should select one of the available Web APIs this application will use like HackPack, Insider Trades or Institutional Ownership.
    Note: HackPack is the most important Web API that an application can use since it supports a large number of endpoints. If you are getting the "Access Denied" error you must create a new app and select the correct Web API which supports the resource you are querying.
  3. After successfully creating a new app, you can access your keys through your "my account" area. Set the AppKey connection property value equal to the Key of your application.

You can then follow the steps below to register EDGAR Online data 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 EDGAR Online data. EDGAR Online entities are displayed in the Datasource Explorer.

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