Is there any way to get the formulas from Salesforce formula fields? Using a CDATA drivers to connect Salesforce, but there is no such options to retrieve the formulas. Can anyone help me with this?

You can try using Metadata API. Below is an example to do that.

<CustomField>

    <fullName>Address__c</fullName>

    <externalId>false</externalId>

    <formula>BillingStreet &amp; BR() &amp; BillingCity &amp; BR() &amp;  BillingPostalCode &amp; BR() &amp;  BillingCountry &amp; BR() &amp;  Street2__c &amp; BR() &amp; Street3__c</formula>

    <formulaTreatBlanksAs>BlankAsZero</formulaTreatBlanksAs>

    <label>Address</label>

    <required>false</required>

    <trackHistory>false</trackHistory>

    <type>Text</type>

    <unique>false</unique>

</CustomField>

I hope this will work.
