Lookup List based on SQL

  Asked By: Sampat    Date: Aug 07    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 972

We have the need to make a our CLIENT field values consistent across our
Sharepoint Sites. Our client names come from our Accounting System database
(SQL). Is there a way to have these values put into a list so that they are
automatically updated and so that our libraries using the Client field always
have the most up to date information?

Our IT group tried using the Business Data catalog but it required the user to
sort through the other fields (address, city, etc) in order to the values for
the Name.

One option is to develop a custom field  type for this purpose. There are many
examples on this on the Internet if you do a search.
