Northwind Odata Feed

If you are new to Odata feeds, you may like to play around with some sample data to see how one works. Northwind is a fictitious company database that has been used in SQL Server and Microsoft Access for may years and kind of like the Grand-Daddy of Adventureworks.

Access the Northwind Odata feed from here

This is the URL that you need to paste into the Data Feed URL field of the PowerPivot Table Import wizard.


For first timers this is a good starting page where you can find links to how to create an OData feed and other FAQs  This can be useful when you want an oData feed from your vendor, but they have never heard of it.

The PowerPivot Table Import Wizard will chug you through a few screens and then you are on your way to consuming a real Odata feed sample.


Happy Data Feeding !
