Class Description: This session takes a holistic approach to the topic of database integration with AutoCAD®. Rather than focusing only on the tools (such as dbConnect), we will examine all the issues that you are faced with when integrating a CAD system with a database system. You will learn the fundamentals of database design and SQL, and study real-world examples that show how important these skills are to the success of your application. This session will also explore how development environments, such as VBA, can be used to extend the built-in features. We will combine this knowledge with the use of AutoCAD® and dbConnect to develop a complete application from start to finish.
