Hi All- 


My organization recently switched from a SQL server database to an Azure database. I previously purchased the ODBC driver for SAS/ACCESS knowing that after the switch I would need to purchase/install and Data Direct driver which will allow me to continue to pull data from both. I have completed both those steps but am still not able to pull data. 

Does anyone have experience with pulling data from Azure through SAS with the Data Direct driver? Can you please provide an example connection string? This is the string I was previously using and it doesn't work: 


proc sql;
connect to ODBC (user=xxxx password=xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx dsn=xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx);
create table TEST as
select * from connection to odbc
(select * from TEST);


Thanks so much for the help, I can't find any info about this.
