In this blog I will walk through the steps on how to make an ODBC connection from MS Excel to Google BigQuery and followed by importing the data from Google BigQuery to MS Excel.
Progress DataDirect has extensive experience of building ODBC connectors for MS Excel.
With the DataDirect suite of ODBC drivers, you can connect to a wide variety of high-value data sources in the market today. Whether you are using a traditional Relational Database Management System or a Big Data, Cloud or REST based sources, DataDirect has you covered.
Progress DataDirect ODBC drivers are the industry standard for ODBC drivers, providing the advanced functionality, performance, and reliability developers need to quickly deliver high-quality, database-independent applications.
Connecting to a Progress DataDirect ODBC driver from MS Excel is very straightforward. In this tutorial, we walk you through connecting MS Excel to Google BigQuery. These same steps can be used to connect MS Excel to any DataDirect ODBC driver.
This tutorial assumes that you have ODBC drivers installed and a data source configured. If you have not yet done these steps, please follow these instructions. Ensure that Microsoft Excel and ODBC Driver architecture matches. For example, if you have a 64-Bit Microsoft Excel installed then you need to have the 64-Bit version of Progress DataDirect ODBC drivers installed.
1. Download and install the Progress DataDirect Google BigQuery ODBC driver.
3. Progress DataDirect Google BigQuery driver supports both OAUTH 2.0 authentication and Service Account authentication. While configuring your DSN you can choose the desired authentication mechanism to connect to Google BigQuery.
4. Please follow the link to the details on configuring OAUTH 2.0
