Hi,

The only "correct" option I'm aware of to import data into Extender is to use eOne's SmartConnect product.  Their formal recommendation is that data shouldn't be imported into Extender via SQL.

However, I have done a few integrations where I imported data into Extender tables, and they work just fine.  As long as you take the time to understand the tables and data and do things properly, it is not difficult.

If the direct SQL approach is an option for you, you will want to review the EXT tables in your company database, such as EXT00100, EXT00101, EXT00102, etc.

To insert data into those tables, I would recommend calling the extender stored procedures, such as zDP_EXT00100SI, zDP_EXT00101SI, etc.

Let me know if that is an option for you.

Thanks,
