SAP Fieldglass ODBC Driver

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

Access SAP Fieldglass data like you would a database - read, write, and update SAP Fieldglass Approvals, Audit Trails, Analytics, etc. through a standard ODBC Driver interface.



Update SAP Fieldglass data by creating a linked table in Microsoft Access with the CData SAP Fieldglass 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 SAP Fieldglass, you can update live SAP Fieldglass data in Microsoft Access; for example, you can make updates that can be immediately seen by other users.

Connect to SAP Fieldglass 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.

To authenticate, you will need to specify the Username, Password, APIKey, and EnvironmentURL connection properties.

To obtain an APIKey, log in to the SAP API Business Hub and click on Get API Key.

Follow the steps below to create a linked table, which enables you to access live AuditTrails 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 AuditTrails table.
  3. Select the CData SAP Fieldglass data source from the Machine Data Source tab.

  4. Select the AuditTrails 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.
