We need to do the following, and part of our evaluation of the Enterprise edition of PowerBuilder is to ascertain this information. We are currently using the desktop product.
We want to make a hot link between our datafile (say WATCOM server) and any Microsoft Word documents we choose. Then, the user can go into MS Word (or Excel...) and have real-time data for letters, graphing, spreadsheets and the like.
Can this be done? Is OLE2 the solution? Is there a better way?
I understand as well, that MS Word documents and their associated menus and toolbars can be imbedded into a PowerBuilder GUI, using OLE/OLE2. Is this correct?
Thank you very much,
