CFront versus ODBC

Hi all, I have a basic question. When I use the CFront ocx file within VB, how does CFront maintain the connection with a Navision Databse? Is that by ODBC or does CFront doing it by itself (i.e. by using tcp/ip). Thanks, Roelof.

C/Front maintains the connection itself.

Just like an ordinary Navision client does…

C/FRONT is an API which enable third party application to connect to Navision Financials without using C/ODBC. Writting and reading data is way faster using C/FRONT than C/ODBC. And from my experience C/FRONT is a hell of a lot more reliable than C/ODBC. tarek_demiati@ureach.com
