Embarcadero RAD Studio provides a development environment for Delphi and C++Builder applications. With the CData FireDAC Components for Veeva, you gain access to live Veeva data within RAD Studio, abstracting the data into tables, views, and stored procedures that can be used to both retrieve and update Veeva data. This article will walk through connecting to Veeva using the Data Explorer.

Connecting to Veeva Data Using Data Explorer

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

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

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

    You are ready to connect after specifying the following connection properties:

    • Url: The host you see in the URL after you login to your account. For example:
    • User: The username you use to login to your account.
    • Password: The password you use to login to your account.

  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: NorthwindProducts) onto the form.

  7. Select the NorthwindProductsTable 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 NorthwindProducts data.
