LinkedIn Ads ODBC Driver

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

Access LinkedIn Ads data like you would a database - read, write, and update LinkedIn Ads Analytics, Campaings, Conversion, Forms, etc. through a standard ODBC Driver interface.



Update LinkedIn Ads data by creating a linked table in Microsoft Access with the CData LinkedIn Ads ODBC Driver.

CData ODBC drivers connect your data to any database management tool that supports Open Database Connectivity (ODBC). This includes many of the most popular productivity tools, adding new capabilities for document sharing and collaboration. Using the CData ODBC driver for LinkedIn Ads, you can update live LinkedIn Ads data in Microsoft Access; for example, you can make updates that can be immediately seen by other users.

Connect to LinkedIn Ads as an ODBC Data Source

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.

LinkedIn Ads uses the OAuth authentication standard. OAuth requires the authenticating user to interact with LinkedIn using the browser. See the OAuth section in the Help documentation for a guide.

Create a Linked Table to Analytics Data

Follow the steps below to create a linked table, which enables you to access live Analytics data.

  1. On the External Data tab in Access, click ODBC Database.
  2. Select the option to link to the data source. A linked table will enable you to read from and write data to the Analytics table.
  3. Select the CData LinkedIn Ads data source from the Machine Data Source tab.

  4. Select the Analytics table. For more information on this table, see the "Data Model" chapter in the help documentation.
  5. Double-click the linked table to make edits. The linked table will always have up-to-date data and any changes will be reflected back to the underlying table.
