Parquet Icon Parquet ODBC Driver

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

Access Parquet data like you would a database - read, write, and update Parquet ParquetData, etc. through a standard ODBC Driver interface.

Connect to Parquet Data in DBArtisan

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

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

Integrate Parquet 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.

Connect to your local Parquet file(s) by setting the URI connection property to the location of the Parquet file.

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

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