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

Access TigerGraph data like you would a relational database through a standard ODBC Driver interface.



You can use the CData TigerGraph ODBC Driver with Microsoft Power Query. In this article, you will use the ODBC driver to import TigerGraph data into Microsoft Power Query.

The CData ODBC Driver for TigerGraph enables you to link to TigerGraph data in Microsoft Power Query, ensuring that you see any updates. This article details how to use the ODBC driver to import TigerGraph data into Microsoft Power Query.

Connect to TigerGraph 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 with your TigerGraph instance, set the User, Password, and URL properties to valid TigerGraph credentials. By default connections are made on port 14240.

Import TigerGraph Data

Follow the steps below to import TigerGraph data using standard SQL:

  1. From the ribbon in Excel, click Power Query -> From Other Data Sources -> From ODBC.

  2. Enter the ODBC connection string. Below is a connection string using the default DSN created when you install the driver: Provider=MSDASQL.1;Persist Security Info=False;DSN=CData TigerGraph Source
  3. Enter the SELECT statement to import data with. For example:

    SELECT id, locationId FROM person WHERE locationId = 'chn'
  4. Enter credentials, if required, and click Connect. The results of the query are displayed in the Query Editor Preview. You can combine queries from other data sources or refine the data with Power Query formulas. To load the query to the worksheet, click the Close and Load button.
