Accessing Sharepoint lists from AspRunner.NET

Has anyone found a way to Access/open Microsoft / Sharepoint lists from AspRunner.NET ?
I tried a URL connector string but did not work. e.g. URL=http://sharepointServerName/;User=myUsername;Password=myPassword;SharePoint Edition=SharePoint Online;

You can see a few SharePoint connection string examples here.

It will probably help if you tell us what exactly is happening when you are trying to connect.

many thanks for the very quick reply.
I had already tried the sharepoint connector strings that you also sent the link to.
Am getting the following error when I enter a string. (see image)

I tested and can connect to sharepoint list from Microsoft Access using same credentials and sharepoint site link. Possibly I am missing something from the string?

Make sure you have installed CData ODBC driver for Sharepoint and specified the connection string this way:

Thanks for feedback and confirming requirments, i.e. one needs to purchase an ODBC driver to use with asprunner to connect to sharepoint lists.

I think you can also try accessing Sharepoint lists via their REST API.

Many thanks for feedback and API info.

Maybe might be a suggestion for future versions of asprunner to possibly look at having sharepoint LISTS connector, especially as a lot of companies are moving to cloud based file storage including use ofsharepoint lists as basic data tables.
Thanks again. :-)
