But it isn't, it's the customer's.


At any rate, I haven't done that from a third-party company, only from the customer. On my last job, one of my primary tasks was to copy data between different databases (Ingres and SQL server in particular).

The vendor that used Ingres didn't seem to mind. If I wrote to the database directly it crashed the system (yes, I did that more than once -- yes, the production database), but I could read the database. Getting data in was more of a problem, but doable.

The vendor that used SQL Server wasn't very happy:

0) At some point before I got there someone had created some tables in the application's database (a big no-no) -- and it was some time (years?) before anyone realized that they had broken the backup. WTF | :WTF:

1) We had asked the vendor for an API so we could update the database; they said they would, then hemmed-and-hawed, then delivered a unusable tool. Sigh | :sigh:

1.a) In the meantime, I had asked tech support whether or not I could set certain fields and he said I could. So I did. So by the time their management found out and freaked, it was too late. Big Grin | :-D


Oh, and in both cases, the vendors knew what we were trying to do. It sounds like, in the case you describe, the vendor didn't know, and that's the real problem.
