Google Calendars ODBC Driver

The Google Calendars ODBC Driver is a powerful tool that allows you to connect with live data from Google Calendars, directly from any applications that support ODBC connectivity.

Access Google Calendars data like you would a database, including Calendars, Events, Attendees, etc. through a standard ODBC Driver interface.



Use wizards in DBArtisan to configure Google Calendar data as a data source.

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

Integrate Google Calendar 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.

You can connect to Google APIs on behalf of individual users or on behalf of a domain. Google uses the OAuth authentication standard. See the "Getting Started" section of the help documentation for a guide.

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

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