database ( db ) and UID

Recommended Posts


does anybody have experiences with connecCAD databases connecting them to sql databases?

Does anybody know how I can get the UID from the objects of connectCAD? Will connectCAD write the UID to an external database? How can I get the UID when I am exporting a connectCAD databse with the VW database exporting tool?

You can add the ODBC > Database menu to your workspace and link your database using this. You will need to install and set up the ODBC driver for your particular database. There a whole section on this in the online help. As far as UIDs go, we now link our objects internally using other methods so I'd have to know a bit more about what you are trying to do in order to help. Suggest you start by getting the database connection and then see what that can do for you.


If you get stuck ask me.
