Connect a SharePoint list with external data. SharePoint Business Data List Connector (BDLC) connects any type of SharePoint list (no Web Part) with external business data using list settings, e.g. for contacts, tasks or events. The data can be presented without any restrictions, with the full read-only and optionally write-back (Create, Update, Delete: CRUD) functionality of common SharePoint lists. Views, sorting and grouping, filters and calculated fields can all be created. BDLC can be used to connect real SharePoint lists to databases, such as MS SQL Server, Oracle, IBM DB2, MySQL, Sybase Advantage Database Server, Sybase Adaptive Server Enterprise, Informix, Postgres SQL, IBM UniData, IBM UniVerse, AS/400 (IMB iSeries), Progress, Microsoft Office data files or other SharePoint lists.
