Hi,

 

I want to conncet in my macro to an external databasetable (without odbc)

I want to conncet over an ip-addess.

 

In my macro I want excequte a query from my databasetable.

The result of the query I want to work with it.

At the end I want to excecute an insert into statement to my database table.

 

I' am able to use alteryx for that?

 

But how?

 

Best regards

Mathias

Hello @mathias_schnoor ,

what do you mean by "without odbc"?

Are you able to connect to your Database with a third party tool on the same machine?

If so, how do you proceed?

Thanks.

 

I know it from e.g. Java Programming. There is a special jar, an ip-address for the database and and passwort. I do not need a ODBC-Driver to connect to the database.

With Alteryx is works the in same way, i hob so.

Unfortunately, it doesn't work the same for Alteryx, you need a driver. In java, the connexion use the JDBC driver.
