    Hi MartyStev-1127,

    Welcome to Microsoft Q&A.
    You can try to use this Microsoft Dataverse ODBC Driver to set up a linked server for Dataverse data. Please refer to Connect to Microsoft Dataverse Data as a Linked Server for more details.
    In addition, a SQL data connection is available on the Microsoft Dataverse endpoint. The SQL connection provides read-only access to the table data of the target Dataverse environment thereby allowing you to execute SQL queries against the Dataverse data tables. You can also use SSMS 18.4 or later with the Dataverse endpoint SQL connection. Please refer to this doc for more information.

    Best Regards,
    Amelia

    Hi @Thomas Barnouin ,

    (1) Please don't use an old thread which someone else started since you cannot control it or close the thread and it it is already closed then no one will check it probably. Better option is to open a new thread and remember to close it at the end

    (2) Regarding your question, you can check this tutorial:

    https://www.cdata.com/kb/tech/dataverse-odbc-linked-server.rst

    Option two is to use a simple connection like to another SQL Server (SQL Server Native Client - SQLNCLI) but first you configure the TDS Remoting Service and connect using the port 5558

    Check this for more information:
