Greenplum ODBC Driver

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

Access Greenplum databases from virtually anywhere through a standard ODBC Driver interface.

Use wizards in DBArtisan to configure Greenplum data as a data source.

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

Integrate Greenplum 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.

To connect to Greenplum, set the Server, Port (the default port is 5432), and Database connection properties and set the User and Password you wish to use to authenticate to the server. If the Database property is not specified, the default database for the authenticate user is used.

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

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