Limitations and Requirements


During normal selection or import of an entire table, you may encounter an error indicating a problem with a specific column. Since some tables require filtering based on a particular column, you can only ingest data from them using custom SQL statements. In this case, use the problematic column as a filter in the WHERE clause of a custom SQL statement to ingest the table.

  • For more information, consult the CData driver documentation for the specific table.

  • For more information on using custom SQL, go to Create Dataset with SQL.


For filtering date columns, this connection type supports a set of literal functions on dates. You can use these to reduce the volume of data extracted from the database using a custom SQL query. For more information, go to the pg_dateliteralfunctions.htm page in the driver documentation for this connection type.

  • Supports authentication via Username and Password.
