    1. Biztalk

    2. Scribe

    6. Using custom code.

    2. Size of Data

    3. Avaialable resources.

    4. Notification for success or failure

  • My objective is to insert a new record into a database "on demand". This means a new record should be created when the user click "Yes" on a aspx page.

    So I gues it would be best to do it via Code. I use the webservice.

    Besides the example shown by Cornel does anyone has another example of how to proceed for inserting a new record into a custom entity.


    Thanks in advance,

  • Hello

    As so far I know, for real time/ batch data upload with CRM system, ther are 4 tools available:

    1. BizTalk server (using adapters)

    2. SSIS packages(comsuming web services)

    3. Custom code (accessing the web services)

    4. Or mixing up two of above tools (like ASP.NET code and SSIS / SSIS and SQL procedures / ASP.NET code and SQL procedures etc.)

    Is there is any other tool aviablable for that.

    I am concerned about data coming from a different source system in the format of Excel, CSV, XML, SQL queries etc. and those data needs to be updated automatically into CRM system (not one time data upload).

    It would be helpful if I get more information on that.
