Locally installed ODBC driver

Hi 

 

I am new enough to Fabric that I'm not sure if this question belongs in Dataflows or Data Pipelines so please forgive me if I've posted in the wrong place.

 

I have an ODBC driver (authored by a company called cData) for Hubspot installed locally on my work laptop.  I use it to import data into Excel models.  I currently have a trial licence for Fabric.   Is there a way for me to use that ODBC driver to get data into my Fabric Lakehouse?

 

Cheers

 

Stuart

Hi @stuartbisset 

Thanks for using Fabric Community.

Currently ODBC connection is possible in Dataflow Gen2.

Please check the supported types here

https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/power-query/connectors/odbc#prerequisites

 

Hope this helps. Please let me know if you have any further questions.

Yes, I have had a look at that but can't seem to figure out how to make that work.  Any further step by step or screenshots would be very much appreciated

Hi @stuartbisset 
First you would need to install an On-Premises Gateway.

After creating On-Prem gateway, then you can connect this gateway in Fabric.
Hope this helps. Please let me know if you have any further questions.

Many thanks for your response.  I believe I have a personal gateway installed correctly which seems to be online:

I also managed to create a connection (though I'm not sure if this is necessary or not?):

But the real trouble begins when I try a dataflow gen 2, using the ODBC connector:

As you can see above:

1. I have guessed the connection string to be "dsn=Blackford Hubspot ODBC".  

2. "Create new connection" is the only option i have in the drop down list for 'connection'

3. "(none)" is the only option I have for 'Data Gateway' but I know this should be pointing to my personal mode gateway.

 

Just can't seem to get this ODBC part working.  Any further help, again, very much appreciated.

 

Many thanks
