PROIV Export Data - Subcontract this Task
Posted 21 April 2004 - 07:45 PM
Without knowing the specifics:
You can certainly data capture any report with relative ease.
Also, your application may have a report writer tool within it.
If your database is an SQL database, then any ODBC tool will do. If you're on ProISAM, you can purchase a ProISAM ODBC driver (from your vendor).
Finally, you can contract with your vendor for custom updates that export data in any fashion that you want.
Of course, if you go the ODBC route, you'll really need to know your table structures. Depending on your application, learning your database structure may be a massive undertaking.
So, it's kind of all over the place...

I think you may have been referencing my post when you said that "You don't even need to know the database format" for the tool you are recommending.
From experience, we try to always tell our clients that having access to the database and knowing how to use that data are radically different concepts. I have no idea what application AV36 has, but without having a good idea how tables are laid out, etc., he could still be looking at a massive hack job after extracting the data...
But, it does sound that the tool you're recommending can solve a major part of his requirements.
