This article will walk through connecting to Sage Cloud Accounting using the Data Explorer.

Connecting to Sage Cloud Accounting Data Using Data Explorer

You can create a simple application for displaying Sage Cloud Accounting data by utilizing the CData FireDAC Components for Sage Cloud Accounting and a new VCL Forms Application:

  1. Open the Data Explorer in RAD Studio and expand FireDAC.
  2. Right-click on CData Sage Cloud Accounting Data Source and click Add New Connection.

  3. Name the connection.
  4. Fill in the necessary connection parameters and click OK.

    You can connect to Sage Business Cloud Accounting using the embedded OAuth connectivity. When you connect, the OAuth endpoint opens in your browser. Log in and grant permissions to complete the OAuth process. See the OAuth section in the online Help documentation for more information on other OAuth authentication flows.

  5. Back in the Data Explorer, expand the tables for the connection.
  6. Create a new VCL Forms application and drag a table (for example: SalesInvoices) onto the form.

  7. Select the SalesInvoicesTable object on the form and set the Active property to true.
  8. Right-click on the object, bind visually, and link everything (*) to a new control (TStringGrid).

  9. Arrange the TStringGrid on the form and run the application to see the SalesInvoices data.
