Version 24.1.8910


You can use the Btrieve connector from the CData Sync application to capture data from Btrieve and move it to any supported destination. To do so, you need to add the connector, authenticate to the connector, and complete your connection.

Establish a Connection

To allow Sync to use data from Btrieve, you first must establish a connection to Btrieve. Follow these steps to connect Btrieve to your Sync account:

  1. Open the Connections page of the Sync dashboard.

  2. Click Add Connection to open the Select Connectors page.

  3. Click the Sources tab and locate the Btrieve row.

  4. Click the Configure Connection icon at the end of that row. If you do not see the Configure Connection icon, you need to add the connector according to the instructions in Connections.

  5. Enter connection settings on the Settings tab:

    • Connection Name - Enter a connection name of your choice.

    • Database - Enter either the location of the Btrieve database files or the name of the database when DatabaseLocation is set to the database path.

    • User - Enter the username that you use to authenticate to Btrieve.

    • Password - Enter the password that you use to authenticate to Btrieve.

    • Server - Enter the address for your Btrieve server. The default server value is localhost.

  6. Click Create & Test to create the connection.

  7. Define advanced connection settings on the Advanced tab. (In most cases, though, you should not need these settings.)
