Use the CData ODBC Driver for Phoenix in Microsoft Power Query

You can use the CData Phoenix ODBC Driver with Microsoft Power Query. In this article, you will use the ODBC driver to import Phoenix data into Microsoft Power Query.

The CData ODBC Driver for Phoenix enables you to link to Phoenix data in Microsoft Power Query, ensuring that you see any updates. This article details how to use the ODBC driver to import Phoenix data into Microsoft Power Query.

Connect to Phoenix as an ODBC Data Source

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 Apache Phoenix via the Phoenix Query Server. Set the Server and Port (if different from the default port) properties to connect to Apache Phoenix. The Server property will typically be the host name or IP address of the server hosting Apache Phoenix.

Authenticating to Apache Phoenix

By default, no authentication will be used (plain). If authentication is configured for your server, set AuthScheme to NEGOTIATE and set the User and Password properties (if necessary) to authenticate through Kerberos.

Import Phoenix Data

Follow the steps below to import Phoenix data using standard SQL:

  1. From the ribbon in Excel, click Power Query -> From Other Data Sources -> From ODBC.

  2. Enter the ODBC connection string. Below is a connection string using the default DSN created when you install the driver: Provider=MSDASQL.1;Persist Security Info=False;DSN=CData ApachePhoenix Source
  3. Enter the SELECT statement to import data with. For example:

    SELECT Id, Column1 FROM MyTable WHERE Id = '123456'
  4. Enter credentials, if required, and click Connect. The results of the query are displayed in the Query Editor Preview. You can combine queries from other data sources or refine the data with Power Query formulas. To load the query to the worksheet, click the Close and Load button.
