You can use an ODBC connection here. That is what we use. It really is
nothing more than a standard ODBC connection. It might make your
testing easier if you use MS Access and then you can play around with
your ODBC settings. I'm out of the office right now so I don't have
easy access to our driver settings. Although it is pretty standard
stuff - no different than you would do from your desktop.

Subject: SQL Server Pull From Systemi

One of the "pieces" we lost in last weeks SQL Server crash was a number
of
stored procedures that in essence were set as kron jobs that did the
following:

Delete all records from FILEA on SQL Server
Import all records from FILEA on Systemi to FILEA on SQL Server

Our SQL guy is having problems getting the SQL server to even see the
Systemi or any files to begin doing the critical ones manually.

I know he needs to set up some kind of OLEDB or ODBC connection, but
other
than that I am clueless and he's been pounding the keyboard all day just
tryign different things, googling etc without much success. Can someone
point me in the right direction to point him.

I can last about an hr with him before we both get
frustrated.............
