CData Sync



Use CData Sync to customize and automate Excel Online data replication to SAP HANA.

Always-on applications rely on automatic failover capabilities and real-time data access. CData Sync integrates live Excel Online data into your SAP HANA instance, allowing you to consolidate all of your data into a single location for archiving, reporting, analytics, machine learning, artificial intelligence and more.

Configure SAP HANA as a Replication Destination

Using CData Sync, you can replicate Excel Online data to SAP HANA. To add a replication destination, navigate to the Connections tab.

  1. Click Add Connection.
  2. Select SAP HANA as a destination.
  3. Enter the necessary connection properties. To connect to SAP HANA, set the following:
    • Server: The IP address or name of the server you want to connect to.
    • Port: The port where the server is running.
    • Database: The name of the database.
    • User: The username of a user with read/write access to the database.
    • Password: The password of a user with read/write access to the database.
  4. Click Test Connection to ensure that the connection is configured properly.
  5. Click Save Changes.

Configure the Excel Online Connection

You can configure a connection to Excel Online from the Connections tab. To add a connection to your Excel Online account, navigate to the Connections tab.

  1. Click Add Connection.
  2. Select a source (Excel Online).
  3. Configure the connection properties.

    You can connect to a workbook by providing authentication to Excel Online and then setting the following properties:

    • Workbook: Set this to the name or Id of the workbook.

      If you want to view a list of information about the available workbooks, execute a query to the Workbooks view after you authenticate.

    • UseSandbox: Set this to true if you are connecting to a workbook in a sandbox account. Otherwise, leave this blank to connect to a production account.

    You use the OAuth authentication standard to authenticate to Excel Online. See the Getting Started section in the help documentation for a guide. Getting Started also guides you through executing SQL to worksheets and ranges.

  4. Click Connect to ensure that the connection is configured properly.
  5. Click Save Changes.

Configure Replication Queries

CData Sync enables you to control replication with a point-and-click interface and with SQL queries. For each replication you wish to configure, navigate to the Jobs tab and click Add Job. Select the Source and Destination for your replication.

Replicate Entire Tables

To replicate an entire table, click Add Tables in the Tables section, choose the table(s) you wish to replicate, and click Add Selected Tables.

Customize Your Replication

You can use the Transform feature to customize your replication. The Transform feature allows you to specify which columns to replicate, rename the columns at the destination, and even perform operations on the source data before replicating. To customize your replication, click the Transform button in the Tables section and customize the replication.

Schedule Your Replication

In the Schedule section, you can schedule a job to run automatically, configuring the job to run after specified intervals ranging from once every 15 minutes to once every month.

Once you have configured the replication job, click Save Changes. You can configure any number of jobs to manage the replication of your Excel Online data to PostgreSQL.
