I just posted a new sample (Attached)
The "Contact OleDB Grid" is a custom control that you can use in ACT! to view structured data, often available on external database systems and applications, which may pertain to your current contact. For example, imagine that you had some extra information about your contacts in a structured SQL database such as information regarding invoices, orders, products bought etc that was stored in an ERP system. With the Contact OleDB grid, it is very simple to display this information in context, in a TAB against your contact record.
Note, that the ZIP file includes SQL examples that work with the Northwind database to "get you started". Also note the known issues specified in the PDF.
I have asked before whether people "out there" are interested in receiving the Source code for these samples...It takes effort and time to clean up the comments and make sure that there are enough of them before we post source, but we are willing to do so...if there is demand for it out there.
So far, we have not received much requests for the source, so if you are sitting quietly "on the side line" waiting for source to be available, it will probably not happen unless you speak up and ask :-)
