The Financials Power BI connector is based on the Invantive SQL driver for Financials, completed by a high-performance OData connector which works straight on Power BI without any add-on. The OData protocol is always version 4, independent whether the backing platform uses OData, SOAP or another protocol.

Monitor API Calls

When a query or DML-statement has been executed on Invantive SQL a developer can evaluate the actual calls made to the Financials API using a query on sessionios@DataDictionary. As an alternative, extensive request and response logging can be enabled by setting log-native-calls-to-disk to true. In the %USERPROFILE%\Invantive\NativeLog folder Invantive SQL will create log files per Financials API request and response.


The SQL driver for Financials supports partitioning: data from multiple companies are all listed together in one table. The value of the column COMPANY_CODE indicates which company the data belongs to.

An introduction into the concepts of Invantive SQL such as databases, data containers and partitioning can be found in the Invantive SQL grammar.

The configuration can be changed using various attributes from the database definition, on log on and during use. A full list of configuration options is listed in the driver attributes.

The catalog name is used to compose the full qualified name of an object like a table or view. The schema name is used to compose the full qualified name of an object like a table or view. On Financials the comparison of two texts is case sensitive by default.

Changes and bug fixes on the Financials SQL driver can be found in the release notes. Get access to the community through the Financials section of the Invantive forums.
