ActiveX Data Objects - DSN-Less Database connection demo

Recommended Posts

GreenCan

This is an example how to access/query different kind of Databases with AutoIt.  The demo contains also test Databases, so the script functions for most of the provided database connections.

Databases covered here:

  • Oracle (no demo database for this one)
  • MS SQL Server (no demo database for this one)
  • SQLite (requires installation of the SQLite ODBC driver software available here: http://www.ch-werner.de/sqliteodbc/ )

Of course SQLite is natively available in AutoIt but in some cases it might be preferable to use the ODBC approach accessing the database via the same scripted method, for example if you use different Databases in the same script, it is much easier to code.

  • Excel
  • DBase DBF
  • MS Access
  • CSV Text driver (semicolon delimited and comma delimited)

The example script is based on Kinshima’s Oracle SQL example . I like the Dim by pack method, much better than redim one row at the time, which too slow.

All the databases have the same data content (‘Timeline_of_space_exploration’)  to keep the examples similar for every database.

The result of each SQL will be displayed in Arraydisplay, togheter with a window containing the ADO-less connection string (yellow) and SQL.

#========== Demo =============
Global $sDatabaseLocation = @ScriptDir & "\TestDatabases"

#========== Oracle =============
;~ #cs
;~ Not demo-able except if you have an Oracle instance
;~ #ce

$sConnectionString = 'DRIVER={Oracle in OraClient11g_home1};DBQ=myDatabase.world;uid=myUserID;pwd=myPassword;'
$sSQL = 'SELECT sysdate AS "Sysdate Raw", to_char(sysdate, ''Dy DD/MM/YY HH24:MI'') AS "Now" FROM dual'
Format_SQL($sSQL, $sConnectionString)
MsgBox(0,"Oracle SQL","You require to have access to an Oracle instance and modify the connection string before proceeding without error." & @CRLF & "The current Connection string will generate a COM error.")
Query($sConnectionString, $sSQL, 500, "SQL Oracle")

#========== MS SQL Server =============
MsgBox(0,"MS SQL Server","You require to have access to a SQL Server instance and modify the connection string before proceeding without error." & @CRLF & "The current Connection string will generate a COM error.")
$sConnectionString = 'DRIVER={SQL Server};SERVER=ServerNameorIP;DATABASE=DatabaseServer;Trusted_Connection=no;uid=myUserID;pwd=myPassword;'
$sSQL = 'SELECT 18 AS "Circle Radius",round(PI() * power(18,2) ,3) AS "Surface of circle", round(PI() * 18 * 2,3) AS "Circumference of circle"'
Format_SQL($sSQL, $sConnectionString)
Query($sConnectionString, $sSQL, 500, "MS SQL Server")

#========== SQLite =============
#cs
Accessing SQLite via ODBC requires installation of the SQLite ODBC driver software available here:
http://www.ch-werner.de/sqliteodbc/

Note: You will have to install the 32-bit driver,  as far as I could test, x6' version, sqliteodbc_w64 doesn't function on my x64 Windows

You can access SQLite natively FROM AutoIt
    For example look at my topics
        - SQLite Report generator
            http://www.autoitscript.com/forum/topic/149767-sqlite-report-generator/#entry1068258
        - SQLite demonstration of native recognition of BLOB object in Listview

Can you explain what you mean by ADO-less?  Aren't you using ADO to connect to ODBC?

Global $oODBC_Connection = ObjCreate("ADODB.Connection")
Global $oODBC_RecordSet = ObjCreate("ADODB.Recordset")

of course, you are fully correct, I should have written DSN-less connection, this type of connection is using ODBC indeed. 

thanks for the correction.

unfortunately, I cannot change the title of the topic anymore...

I believe you can change the topic title if you use the Full Editor on the first post?

Thanks for the explanation...just wanted to make sure I wasn't missing or misunderstanding something.

      Here is a simple program that some of you might appreciate.
      It is a more full fleshed out version of something I worked on a while back as a proof of concept.
      I will just quote the information found in the Program Information dialog.

      INItoSQL DB v1.6.zip  (see Post #7 for update details) BIG THANKS to ResNullius for huge speed improvement etc.
      Program requires the sqlite3.dll, not included, but easily enough obtained.
      I have also included the beginnings of a new UDF (SimpleSQL_UDF) I am working, which you can use with the included 'Check conversion.au3' file to check a resulting conversion ... just modify the values for a few variables to suit your situation.
      I've not yet gotten around to coding a testing/checking results script, so I recommend the following open source program, which I have been using for some time. It was here, but is now here at GitHub - DB Browser for SQLite

      Here is the bare bones of a UDF I have started work on.
      Mostly just a proof of concept at this stage, and still need to add some functions and dress the UDF up a bit ... to look like a UDF ... though it has my own distinct styling, especially as I have never really developed a UDF before now .... used plenty and modified plenty though. I've even invented my own UDF variable naming convention, which I am sure some of you will be aghast at. I work with what feels best for me, but others are free to adapt if they wish.
      The idea is to emulate the simplicity of INI files, but gain the benefits of SQL.
      Two scripts are provided.
      (1) The UDF, a work in progress - SimpleSQL_UDF.au3
      (2) An example or testing script - UDF_Test.au3
      Another first for me, is creating a 2D array from scratch, never done that before, that I can recall ... never had a need, and even for 1 dimension arrays, for a long time now, I have just used _StringSplit to create them. So I needed a bit of a refresher course, which my good buddy @TheDcoder assisted me with ... not without some angst I might add. LOL
      SimpleSQL_UDF.zip  (12 downloads previously)
      (I have now completed all the functions I intended to. My next update will be a big improvement, bringing things more inline with my latest INItoSQL DB program changes.)
      Program requires the sqlite3.dll, not included, but easily enough obtained.
      Hopefully the usage is self-evident ... just change the Job number variable in the UDF_Test.au3 file to check the existing functions out.
      Enjoy!
      P.S. This is also related to a new program I have just finished and uploaded - INItoSQL DB
