Importing Data into Sharepoint Lists from External Sql Server

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 14, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
 
Hi,

I am looking to import data from  a Relational SQl Server Database that is hosted externally by a 3rd Part vendor. My task is to import all the data that is entered by the external customers into the Sharepoint lists. The external users are presented with a free form Registration page where they enter their data. For the internal users, we want to pull that data in real time and display in lists.

So inother words as soon as the data is entered on the form and user submits it, the database and the sharepoint list should reflect changes simultaneously.

Please give direction as to how can this possible.

Surface data in external lists in Sharepoint Foundation 2010

  

Hi,

I have seen numerous articles for the above, but they all just gloss over the step I am having a problem with, assuming nobody will have an issue with it. 

I'm trying to create an External Content Type so I can use it to display external data (from SQL Server) in an External List.  When I get to the step to add the connection and the SQL Server connection dialog box appears, I enter the server and database names and click OK with the Connect with User's Identity radio button still selected and I get the error message: login failed for user ''. The user is not associated with a trusted SQL Server connection.  I've tried to read up on the different purposes of the radio buttons on offer on this dialog box but don't know which I should really be using and don't think I can create a target application ID anyway in Foundation (for the other two radio button options) as that has to be done in the secure store services.  Can anybody help with this?

Connecting a Sharepoint Custom list with an external Data-source

  
Hi I am planning to connect a Sharepoint Custom list with an external Data-source. External DB will be in Access 2007 format. More Information: I need a solution that we can connect our sharepoint list (one-way) to online db in a way that new  information is directly updated in the sharepoint list, whilst other info changed in sharepoint list  is not synced back to original value. Is there a way to solve this? -saumil
