In order to edit data, Active Table Editor must be able to connect to one or more Data sources.

Active Table Editor can work with following databases:

  • Oracle
  • MS SQL Server
  • Microsoft SQL Server CE
  • Interbase or Firebird
  • MySQL
  • PostgreSQL
  • SQLite
  • Ole DB
  • ODBC

To create a New Connection, Click Outlook BarManagementConnectionsPlus Icon

  • Dialog box will appear.
  • Select the appropriate connection type
  • In the Name Text Box type in a new name for the connection you are about to create
  • Fill in server name/database name/port number and all other relevant information
  • Fill in Username/Password
  • Click Test to ensure the details you have provided are correct


 To refresh the list of databases double click on it

It also possible to use ODBC connection strings for both Reader and Writer connections.

For example for MS SQL Server connection string is:

 Driver={SQL Native Client};

One of the major benefits of using connection strings that it makes it no longer necessary to create ODBC Dsn’s manually on every single computer where Advanced ETL Processor is installed. It also gives a greater control over the connection parameters.


 Leave username and password blank and provide it within the connection string

More information about connection strings can be found at:

The simplest way to create ODBC connection string is to use ODBC Connection builder dialogue. Double click on ODBC driver name to create a connection string.

Allows editing data in tables run scripts or create/drop database objects.
