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?

Thanks !

Reading directly for crm database is okie but writing to crm data base is not supported. you should  avoid this. You should use sdk.

www.stunnware.com/crm2
has got good SDK examples. Start  from creating object in crm.

You only need Updating CRM functionality. Which you can easily learn  with two days effort.
