Connect to PCA Accounting Data in DBArtisan

Use wizards in DBArtisan to configure PCA Accounting data as a data source.

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

Integrate PCA Accounting 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.

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

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