Connect to Teradata Data in DBArtisan

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

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

Integrate Teradata 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 Teradata, provide authentication information and specify the database server name.

  • User: Set this to the username of a Teradata user.
  • Password: Set this to the password of the Teradata user.
  • DataSource: Specify the Teradata server name, DBC Name, or TDPID.
  • Port: Specify the port the server is running on.
  • Database: Specify the database name. If not specified, the default database is used.

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

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