Embarcadero RAD Studio provides a development environment for Delphi and C++Builder applications. With the CData FireDAC Components for MYOB AccountRight, you gain access to live MYOB AccountRight data within RAD Studio, abstracting the data into tables, views, and stored procedures that can be used to both retrieve and update MYOB AccountRight data. This article will walk through connecting to MYOB AccountRight using the Data Explorer.

Connecting to MYOB AccountRight Data Using Data Explorer

You can create a simple application for displaying MYOB AccountRight data by utilizing the CData FireDAC Components for MYOB AccountRight and a new VCL Forms Application:

  1. Open the Data Explorer in RAD Studio and expand FireDAC.
  2. Right-click on CData MYOB AccountRight Data Source and click Add New Connection.

  3. Name the connection.
  4. Fill in the necessary connection parameters and click OK.

    These properties are required when connecting to a company file (both for Cloud and On-Premise instances).

    • CompanyFileId: You can find this by starting MYOB, opening your data file, and selecting Help -> About MYOB
    • User: The username associated with your company file.
    • Password: The password associated with your company file.

    Connecting to a Cloud Instance

    To connect to a cloud instance of MYOB, you can use the embedded OAuth credentials or create an OAuth app with MYOB. This process is detailed in the Help documentation.

    Connecting to an On-Premise instance:

    When connecting to an on-premise instance, you will need to set the following connection property in addition to those above:

    • InitiateOauth: Set this to OFF.
    • Url: The Url of your MYOB instance.

  5. Back in the Data Explorer, expand the tables for the connection.
  6. Create a new VCL Forms application and drag a table (for example: Accounts) onto the form.

  7. Select the AccountsTable object on the form and set the Active property to true.
  8. Right-click on the object, bind visually, and link everything (*) to a new control (TStringGrid).

  9. Arrange the TStringGrid on the form and run the application to see the Accounts data.
