Update Wasabi Data with a Microsoft Access Linked Table

Update Wasabi data by creating a linked table in Microsoft Access with the CData Wasabi ODBC Driver.

CData ODBC drivers connect your data to any database management tool that supports Open Database Connectivity (ODBC). This includes many of the most popular productivity tools, adding new capabilities for document sharing and collaboration. Using the CData ODBC driver for Wasabi, you can update live Wasabi data in Microsoft Access; for example, you can make updates that can be immediately seen by other users.

Connect to Wasabi 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 authorize Wasabi requests, provide the credentials for an administrator account or for an IAM user with custom permissions. Set AccessKey to the access key Id. Set SecretKey to the secret access key.

Note: You can connect as the AWS account administrator, but it is recommended to use IAM user credentials to access AWS services.

For information on obtaining the credentials and other authentication methods, refer to the Getting Started section of the Help documentation.

Create a Linked Table to Buckets Data

Follow the steps below to create a linked table, which enables you to access live Buckets data.

  1. On the External Data tab in Access, click ODBC Database.
  2. Select the option to link to the data source. A linked table will enable you to read and write data to the Buckets table.
  3. Select the CData Wasabi data source from the Machine Data Source tab.

  4. Select the Buckets table. For more information on this table, see the "Data Model" chapter in the help documentation.
  5. Double-click the linked table to make edits. The linked table will always have up-to-date data and any changes will be reflected back to the underlying table.
