Mark, perhaps you and your SQL guy can spend that hour watching this
It should help you connect the dots between SQL Server and i5/OS.

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
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.............
