Google Drive Icon Google Drive ODBC Driver

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

Access Google Drive data like you would a database, including Files, Changes, Apps, etc. through a standard ODBC Driver interface.

Connect to Google Drive Data in DBArtisan

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

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

Integrate Google Drive 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 Drive 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 Drive data. Google Drive entities are displayed in the Datasource Explorer.

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