Pinterest ODBC Driver

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

Access Pinterest data like you would a database - read, write, and update Pinterest Boards, Followers, Pins, etc. through a standard ODBC Driver interface.



Update Pinterest data by creating a linked table in Microsoft Access with the CData Pinterest ODBC Driver.

CData ODBC drivers connect your data to any database management tool that supports Open Database Connectivity (ODBC). This includes many of the most popular productivity tools, adding new capabilities for document sharing and collaboration. Using the CData ODBC driver for Pinterest, you can update live Pinterest data in Microsoft Access; for example, you can make updates that can be immediately seen by other users.

Connect to Pinterest 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.

Pinterest authentication is based on the standard OAuth flow. To authenticate, you must initially create an app via the Pinterest developer platform where you can obtain an OAuthClientId, OAuthClientSecret, and CallbackURL.

Set InitiateOAuth to GETANDREFRESH and set OAuthClientId, OAuthClientSecret, and CallbackURL based on the property values for the app you created.

See the Help documentation for other OAuth authentication flows.

Create a Linked Table to Users Data

Follow the steps below to create a linked table, which enables you to access live Users data.

  1. On the External Data tab in Access, click ODBC Database.
  2. Select the option to link to the data source. A linked table will enable you to read from and write data to the Users table.
  3. Select the CData Pinterest data source from the Machine Data Source tab.

  4. Select the Users table. For more information on this table, see the "Data Model" chapter in the help documentation.
  5. Double-click the linked table to make edits. The linked table will always have up-to-date data and any changes will be reflected back to the underlying table.
