Write in SQL Server 2000 from Domino Server (through ODBC?)

The Domino Server runs under Linux (SuSE 9 Enterprise), the SQL Server 2000 is under MS Win 2k3 Server.

I already implemented Easysoft's ODBC-ODBC Bridge. But I think there has to be a Lotus or a Microsoft solution for this.

(I don't know how many points to assign for this one. Suggest please.)

No, this is the way to go.  On the unixodbc.org site, you can also find another driver (http://www.freetds.org/)  to connect to MS SQL

Another possibilty that's worth while researching is using a JDBC connection (then you will need to write Agents in Java).  

cheers,

Tom

You can use an agent that runs ODBC using either LS:DO (Uselsx "*odbc") or the Lotus Connector objects (Uselsx "*lsxlc").  Both are documented, but the LS:DO documentation is easier to understand.  LSXLC is much more difficult and weird, but it is a stronger provider.

You might also consider getting LEI or using DECS.  DECS and LEI and LC all use the same underlying technology.  LEI does things in batch on a schedule.  DECS does almost exactly the same thing, except it does it real-time -- if you read a document, it can be set to automatically set some of the fields as you read them to a SQL result set, and when you write to a document, it can force an insert or update in SQL to match.  LEI and DECS are essentially in terface driven, no real programming involved.

Oh, forgot to mention, LEI is a costly add-on produdtc for Domino from Lotus.  DECS comes in the box, as does lsxlc and LS:DO.
