PostgreSQL ODBC Driver

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

Access PostgreSQL databases from virtually anywhere through a standard ODBC Driver interface.

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

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

Integrate PostgreSQL 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.

To connect to PostgreSQL, set the Server, Port (the default port is 5432), and Database connection properties and set the User and Password you wish to use to authenticate to the server. If the Database property is not specified, the data provider connects to the user's default database.

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

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