.NET Co Library – Part III

Filed under: .NET & Excel, COM Add-ins — Dennis M Wallentin @ 1:40 pm

To read previously blogposts about the .NET Co Library please see the following entries:

Here in the third blogpost on the subject it will cover the part that create and store connection strings. This part is based on the .NET Connection Tool with some improvements. It uses the following main Windows form:

There is not so much to discuss when it comes to this part. It uses both the .NET Connection Wizard as well as the Data Link Wizard. To some extend these two wizards overlap each other but together they represent the past, the present and the future. The limit of characters for connection strings are now > 32.000 while the limit for aliases are 15 characters and no spaces are allowed.

In the next blogpost about .NET Co library I will be discussion requirements, known issues and also how my strategy for deploying solutions like this one.

Kind regards,
