ODBC Driver for QuickBooks

Connecting to QuickBooks via ODBC Driver

Windows DSN Configuration

After installing the driver, create a DSN for QuickBooks in the ODBC Data Source Administrator.

  1. Open the ODBC Data Source Administrator.
    • Type ODBC Data Sources in the Windows 10 search box and choose the ODBC Data Sources application that matches the bitness of your application (32-bit or 64-bit). You can also open ODBC Data Sources from Control Panel > Administrative Tools. Note that before Windows 8, the icon was named Data Sources (ODBC).
    • Alternatively, you can run C:\Windows\SysWOW64\odbcad32.exe to create a 32-bit DSN or C:\Windows\System32\odbcad32.exe to create a 64-bit DSN.
  2. Select the User DSN or System DSN. Most applications work with any of them, yet some applications require a specific type of DSN.
  3. Click Add. The Create New Data Source dialog appears.
  4. Select Devart ODBC Driver for QuickBooks and click Finish. The driver setup dialog opens.
  5. Click Connect to QuickBooks.


  6. On the login page, select Sign in with Google or specify your QuickBooks credentials and click Sign in.
