Using an iFrame in Microsoft Dynamics CRM
Posted on 2009-04-08
Another CRM question.
We have a CRM form where we need to display an Excel-type spreadsheet on a form (app is being ported from FoxPro where they used a spreadsheet control on their form).
1. Is anyone aware of any sort of pre-made spreadsheet control that I could use in an iFrame that has been designed to integrate with CRM?
OR willl this plan work...
- Create separate entities w/attributes in CRM to store the extra data that I cant use traditional CRM controls for.
- Place an iFrame on one of my CRM form tabs, linked to a custom aspx page
- Allow the aspx page to access the CRM database directly to read and write to the CRM database.
How much in-depth knowledge of the CRM SDK would I need for this...is it an expert-only activity or can somebody with no in-depth knowledge of the SDK get a handle on fairly quickly?
