SPS2003 List items auto updated from a SQL Db Table

  Asked By: Joel    Date: Dec 29    Category: MOSS    Views: 1065


Does anyone know (or have an idea where to start) how to have a WSS Team
site list update itself (or scheduled) from table in a SQL dB Table?

We are building a knowledge base WSS v2.0 Site with a list that will
store data from our HELPDESK system.

We wish the list to (on a regular basis) get its data from the SQL
back-end dB from our Helpdesk application.

Is this possible, or easily do-able?

(I'm aware of the BDC in MOSS2007 - but this is SPS2003 we're still

Possible, but not out of the box.

In the past, I used a console application  that ran on a front-end
server. The application would read the data  from the database and
add/update the SharePoint list  as appropriate. The application was run
via the Scheduled Tasks applet.
