Hi Brian
with any permission you must have an ORACLE user to access the tables in IDEA through ODBC.
Connecting to the ORACLE database through ODBC does not display the tables.

Hi all.

I have managed to amend the Oracle ODBC script to meet my needs, however, I am now seeking to improve it and remove the need to make manual amendments. As can be seen in the attachment, I have had to include a payment date in the SQL parameters for the import.

Is it possible to add variables that are not included on the dialogue box? I would like to pull from eg the user entering 19/20, a "FROM" date of '01-APR-2019' and a TO date of '31-MAR-2020' which can be used in the SQL.

Currently, if a user was to enter 17/18 in the Financial Year, I would expect it would bring back no results, due to my fixed SQL parameters.

I did have a thought that I could include a file or database with a list of dates, financial years and start and end dates to look up to, however, that may be overcomplicating things at this stage!
