Connecting to Google BigQuery
Establishing a Connection shows how to authenticate to Google BigQuery and configure any necessary connection properties. You can create a connection profile in the From Google BigQuery on the CData ribbon.
You can also configure add-in capabilities through the available Connection properties, from data modeling to firewall traversal. The Advanced Settings section shows how to set up more advanced add-in configurations and troubleshoot connection errors.
Configuring a Connection Profile
You can configure access control in a connection profile by defining the operations allowed against Google BigQuery data and store the profile in the workbook to make the workbook easy to share. See Managing Connections for more configuration options for connection profiles.
Connecting from Excel
The add-in adds controls to the Excel ribbon, standard Excel formulas, and VBA classes for writing macros.
Google BigQuery Version Support
The add-in enables read/write SQL-92 access to the BigQuery tables in your Google account or Google Apps domain. The complete aggregate and join syntax in BigQuery is supported. Additionally, statements in the BigQuery syntax can be passed through. The add-in uses version 2.0 of the BigQuery Web services API: You must enable this API by creating a project in the Google Developers Console. See Connecting to Google for a guide to creating a project and authenticating to this API.
