Excel Add-In for Facebook Ads

Build 21.0.8137

Getting Started

Connecting to Facebook Ads

Establishing a Connection shows how to authenticate to Facebook Ads and configure any necessary connection properties. You can create a connection profile by clicking Get Data and selecting From Facebook Ads on the CData ribbon.

Advanced Configurations

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 Facebook Ads 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.

Facebook Ads Version Support

By default, the add-in models the current version of the Facebook Graph API, as bidirectional tables. Older versions can be specified in the Version property.
