I have just installed QLik Sense and want to connect to an Interbase server

I want to connect to data in our Interbase sql server. I see a list of database servers but no Interbase is available.

I know that ODBC is a work around.

Anyone who connect with Qlik to an Interbase SQL server?

Hi,

as I know there is now specific Interbase SQL Server connector available.

You can connect via ODBC or OLEDB. The appropriate component from Interbase have to be installed beforehand.

Thomas

Re: I have just installed QLik Sense and want to connect to an Interbase server

If you mean, if there are plans to provide a direct connector to Interbase database? I would say NO!

Not even for Microsoft SQL Server or Oracle there are specific connectors. So it´s very unlikely that a connector for Interbase will be writte, since Interbase is not a very common database.

But there should be no problem: Find and install an (64bit) ODBC driver for Interbase and connect with Qlik Sense :-)

Dear Thomas,

In the QLik Sense are the Microsoft sql and Oracle available as standard connections.

Re: I have just installed QLik Sense and want to connect to an Interbase server

Not sure what you have installed, but standard connections (without further connectors) are

- Folder (--> to file system)

- ODBC (--> installed ODBC driver necessary, MS SQL Server is maybe automatically installed with Windows)

- OLE DB (--> installed OLEDB driver necessary, MS SQL OLEDB come maybe also with Windows)

- Web-File

That´s it what the standard provides :-)

Re: I have just installed QLik Sense and want to connect to an Interbase server

Ok. I was looking on Qlik Sense Server 2.2. I assume your screenshot is from QS 3.0 (current version).

Finally you need Interbase and there I would bet that now native connector will be available within the next year. It´s just a feeling.

Why not using ODBC?

Re: I have just installed QLik Sense and want to connect to an Interbase server

Hi Thomas,

ODBC is an extra to maintain, thats all. The I had an aswer using the script editor, also an interesting solution.

For now thank ypou for answering all questions. Manny Thanks.
