MYOB AccountRight ODBC Driver

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

Access MYOB AccountRight data like you would a database - read, write, and update Customers, Transactions, Invoices, Sales Receipts, etc. through a standard ODBC Driver interface.

Use wizards in DBArtisan to configure MYOB AccountRight data as a data source.

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

Integrate MYOB AccountRight 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.

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.

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

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