Hi guys!

I'm basically new to our forum and utterly new to Vectorworks.

So I have a gazillion questions in my mind,

I'm just not sure how to ask them properly.

Anyway, here goes...

I am currently studying how I can transfer cell values

from a VW Worksheet to an MS Access DB.

I have already established a connection

between my 'Test Database'

and my Vectorworks document through ODBC.

But, my problem is how to connect

a worksheet to my database.

Can anybody please share with me

a simple code that also shows

how I can integrate my SQL statement

with ODBC to link my files?

I would very much appreciate

all your suggestions!

Thank you very much!

First you are trying to connect a database to a worksheet which cannot be done automatically. The ODBC is designed to connect an external database to objects that have attached records. An object is then matched to a row in the external database with a common field value.

However, it is feasible to match the database to vw worksheet with scripts that will read from or write to the database.

a sample script can be found at
