How to configure QXL to export to ODBC
I am using QXL & I want to export QuickBooks Data to ODBC Database.
How can I export QuickBooks Data to ODBC Database using QXL?
You can export QuickBooks Data to ODBC Database using QXL.
In this example, We will show you export QuickBooks Data to SQLITE (ODBC Database) using QXL.
First, You need ODBC connector to connect with ODBC database.
You need to download & install ODBC connector in your system.
After installing ODBC connector, You need to configure ODBC DSN which will point to the ODBC Database.
I have already created ODBC DSN for SQLITE below is the property of the DSN.
We will use this DSN in QXL. We will use this DSN in QXL.
The first step in adding ODBC connection is to click on settings icon for QXL options details.
Navigate to "Pro Edition" & click "Add New" button for adding the New connection.
Enter connection details (i.e. Connection Name, Connection String) select "ODBC Data Source" as a Connection Type & "Others/Custom Mapping" as Mapping Type.
You can insert any value for Connection Name.
Sample ODBC Connection String Format: DSN = Data Source Name
For Example: DSN=SQLITE
You can configure data mapping as per your ODBC Database. You can choose different datatype as per your ODBC Database.
For Example: If your ODBC database support smallint instead of Int16, then you need to write smallint in the text box of Int16. Same way you can change ODBC Mapping for different datatype as per your ODBC Database.
After changing ODBC Mapping as per your ODBC Database. Click "Test Connection" button.
Test Connection Successful.
Click "Save" button to save connection details.
Connection information updated.
The connection is added in the dropdown list.
Navigate to the "General" tab & select "SQL Server / ODBC Data Source (QXL Pro Edition)" as a Format & click "Close".
Now data is ready to export into ODBC Database. You can export by clicking on the Export icon from QXL Setup Screen.
QuickBooks Data is exported to the SQLITE (ODBC Database).
