This is a sort of follow-on to one of my postings last month. My intent here is to kick off some forum discussions based on today’s posting. The question in short is: We have some great tools for tight integration with Excel that are going to be available very soon, so what else do end-users [...]

Will Johnson started a great thread in the U2 forum, asking about where people go to find and support FOSS for the MV DBMS. Well, there are precious few resources for collaboration in this market. Here are my thoughts on the matter.
In part 1 of his series I described how to modify your existing code so that it can be re-purposed for a GUI. In part 2 I described a general coding structure that will allow you to properly execute any program from “outside”. In this final part of this series I will discuss various connectivity [...]
