I am running Sage Line 100.

What i need to know is - is it possible to connect to Sage through its ODBC driver and both query and update the database.

Does the ODBC driver allow me to write to the database or can i just query it.

also if anyone had a list of the tables in the database could they put them up here or post a link?

thanks

I dont know about Sage specificly but, if you have enough user rights to the database and the ODBC driver is working you should be able to do all database operations that the database supports through it's interface.

i read something that said that the ODBC driver only allowed the database to be queried and not written to.

is this possible?

If I understand this page correctly it seems like the 'Update' sql command is available, and if so it's possible to write also.

Check it out (hope this is the correct 'Sage', as I dont know nothing about the software).

It was not the correct one, sorry :(

There is a threed here abaut the ODBC driver and it seems like there is some issues with some driver versions:

But I cant find anything about it not being able to write to the database, you will have to try it, or wait until someone who has done this before comes by.
