1. A couple of folks have inquired about a native OLE DB provider...if there is enough interest, I might take a stab at porting some of my stuff to an OLEDB provider. But before I get serious about it, I was wondering what specific difficulties people are encountering with OLE DB for ODBC? What sort of features would be desirable for a native provider that the ODBC version doesn't provide? (offhand I can only think of summarized SELECT support... maybe updatable cursors?)
BTW: If I'm not mistaken, the previous post about an OLEDB provider being available wasn't strictly correct...the OLE DB Access Module is a different tool mostly for ETL (hence the FLOAD/FEXP/MLOAD i/f's)...I don't think you could plug the access module as is into, say, SQLServer and get intelligible info out of it...are my assumptions correct?
2. I was curious as to how many people are planning to attend the upcoming West Coast TUG meeting? Are these events mostly marketing shows, or does real knowledge transfer occur?
