Getting StartedCData Excel Add-In for OData 2019 - Build 19.0.7354
Connecting to OData
Establishing a Connection shows how to authenticate to OData and configure any necessary connection properties. You can create a connection profile in the From OData 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 OData 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.
OData Version Support
The add-in is a standard OData consumer that can read and write to OData 2.0, 3.0, and 4.0 services. The major authentication schemes are supported, including HTTP Basic, Digest, and NTLM, as well as SSL/TLS. The add-in also facilitates connecting to data sources that use the OAuth authentication standard.
