Veeva Vault Icon Veeva ODBC Driver

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

Access Veeva data like you would a database - read, write, and update Documents, Users, Groups, etc. through a standard ODBC Driver interface.

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

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

Integrate Veeva 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.

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.

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

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