Intro

Microsoft Word is a widely-used word processing tool developed by Microsoft. Use Domo's Microsoft Word connector to retrieve Microsoft Word files stored on an SFTP server. To learn more about the Microsoft Office API, visit their page (https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/lib.../fp179696.aspx).

You connect to your Microsoft Word account in the Data Center. This topic discusses the fields and menus that are specific to the Microsoft Word connector user interface. General information for adding DataSets, setting update schedules, and editing DataSet information is discussed in Adding a DataSet Using a Data Connector.

Prerequisites

To connect to the SFTP server with Microsoft Word files you want to import, you must have the following:

  • The hostname or IP address of the SFTP server

  • The port number of the SFTP server (default is 22)

  • The username and password you use to log into the SFTP server

Connecting to Your Microsoft Word Account

This section enumerates the options in the Credentials and Details panes in the Microsoft Word Connector page. The components of the other panes in this page, Scheduling and Name & Describe Your DataSet, are universal across most connector types and are discussed in greater length in Adding a DataSet Using a Data Connector.

Credentials Pane

This pane contains fields for entering credentials to connect to your Microsoft Word account. The following table describes what is needed for each field:  

Field

Description

Host

Enter the hostname or IP address of the SFTP server with Microsoft Word files you want to import.

Port

Username

Password

Once you have entered valid Microsoft Word credentials, you can use the same account any time you go to create a new Microsoft Word DataSet. You can manage connector accounts in the Accounts tab in the Data Center. For more information about this tab, see Managing User Accounts for Connectors.
