Hi Ryan,

thanks for sharing this document!

Unfortunately the GenerateSLXID function in the sample code does not work!

Best regards,
Thomas

Thomas,

To be honest I haven't really read the doc, but I just took a look at the GenerateSLXID function. It looks fine to me, but the connection string used (and connection object) are defined elsewhere, outside of the function. So it would depend on how those are defined as to whether it would work or not.

What error do you receive?

Thanks a lot for this Ryan - it's pretty helpful.

I couldn't connect using the SLXNetwork.1 provider, but am able to connect using the SLXOLEDB.1 one. I'm not sure if there's any fuctionality lost using one provider over the other.

I'm trying to create a web service to import Leads via HHTP POST. I was wondering if aside from creating a record each in the LEAD, and LEAD_ADDRESS tables, whether there are other insertions/updates that would need to occur for a Lead to be created.

Thanks

Karan,

The SLXNetwork.1 provider (as mentioned in this doc) is for earlier versions of SLX. Current versions of SLX will have the provider named SLXOLEDB.1 as you have found already.

As for the tables needed for inserting a lead record, those sound right, but I usually run a profiler and insert it via the client to know for sure.

Thanks Ryan - I'm still new to this so the profiler is a good idea.

Since my last last post actually, the connection seems to not work - "Failed to connect to SLXServer. Check if server is running and is compatible with the current provider version". I logged into the server using the SLX client installed on it - so that's not the issue. Back to square one!
