Connect to Google Search Results in DBArtisan

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

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

Integrate Google Search Results 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.

To search with a Google custom search engine, you need to set the CustomSearchId and ApiKey connection properties.

To obtain the CustomSearchId property, sign into Google Custom Search Engine and create a new search engine.

To obtain the ApiKey property, you must enable the Custom Search API in the Google API Console.

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

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