Connect to Microsoft Project Data in DBArtisan

Use wizards in DBArtisan to configure Microsoft Project data as a data source.

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

Integrate Microsoft Project 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.

The User and Password properties, under the Authentication section, must be set to valid Microsoft Project user credentials. In addition, you will need to specify a URL to a valid Microsoft Project server organization root or Microsoft Project services file.

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

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