Smartsheet ODBC Driver

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

Access Smartsheet Sheets, Contacts, Folders, Groups, Users, etc. through a standard ODBC Driver interface.



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

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

Integrate Smartsheet 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.

Smartsheet uses the OAuth authentication standard. To authenticate using OAuth, you will need to register an app to obtain the OAuthClientId, OAuthClientSecret, and CallbackURL connection properties.

However, for testing purposes you can instead use the Personal Access Token you get when you create an application; set this to the OAuthAccessToken connection property.

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

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