Hi, It is possible to establish a connection to Denodo from Power BI using the ODBC Driver. Virtual DataPort can act as a data source in Power BI, to achieve that you can create an ODBC DSN for the Denodo server. You can follow the steps mentioned in the Knowledge Base Article [ DSN configuration for ODBC connections](https://community.denodo.com/kb/view/document/DSN%20configuration%20for%20ODBC%20connections%20to%20VDP?category=Northbound+Connections) to VDP to set up the connection and also refer to the document [Access through ODBC](https://community.denodo.com/docs/html/browse/7.0/vdp/developer/access_through_odbc/access_through_odbc) of the Virtual DataPort Developer Guide. Besides that, if you are a user with a valid Support account then you can download the [Denodo Power BI Custom Connector](https://support.denodo.com/resources/denodo-connect/list/Denodo%207.0) from DenodoConnects in the Denodo support site. You can also check the [Denodo Power BI Custom Connector ](https://community.denodo.com/docs/html/document/denodoconnects/7.0/Denodo%20Power%20BI%20Custom%20Connector%20-%20User%20Manual)- User Manual for more information. Hope this helps!

Hi, To establish the connection, it is not necessary to have Denodo Platform and Power BI installed in the same environment. You can access Denodo Platform from Power BI by using [Denodo Power BI Custom Connector](https://community.denodo.com/docs/html/document/denodoconnects/7.0/Denodo%20Power%20BI%20Custom%20Connector%20-%20User%20Manual) or [Denodo ODBC Driver](https://community.denodo.com/kb/view/document/DSN%20configuration%20for%20ODBC%20connections%20to%20VDP?category=Northbound+Connections). Hope this Helps!
