How to Use QODBC with Tibco Spotfire

This article walks you through using the QODBC Driver for QuickBooks in TIBCO Spotfire. You will use the data import wizard to connect to a DSN (data source name) for QuickBooks and build on the sample visualizations to create a simple dashboard.

Follow the steps below to connect to the DSN and create real-time data visualizations:
1. Click File -> Add Data Tables..

 

2. Click Add -> Database.

 

3. In the Data Source Type menu, select ODBC Data Provider and click Configure.

 

4. Select the DSN for the QuickBooks Data.

 

Please Note: If you have a 64-bit application, then you need to use QRemote 64-bit DSN "QuickBooks Data 64-bit QRemote" as below screenshot.
Please refer: How to configure QRemote

 

Click "OK" to open database.

 

Select the tables that you want to add to the dashboard. This example uses Customers. You can also specify an SQL query. The driver supports the standard SQL syntax. Enter the query in the Editor. In this example, I am fetching Customer Name & Balance from the Customer table.
Select Name, Balance from Customer

 

Click "OK" to add data table.

 

The table is added to Tibco Spotfire.

 

QuickBooks Data is available in Tibco Spotfire. You can visualize it as per your requirement. In this example, I have selected Pie Chart & Bar Chart.
