    I think one of the nice things about Lawson/Infor is Microsoft Add-ins and Spreadsheet Designer. Is it at all possible to use these against other SQL databases to load tables?

    I'm not familiar with spreadsheet designer but I think MS Addins is designed specifically for Lawson. Perhaps someone could modify the program for use with other systems but that's beyond me.

    Lawson AddIns is proprietary - it will only natively query and upload to tables on the Lawson server that the user has security rights to. You would need to house external tables on the server and you would need the users to have security rights to them.

    For example, we have a custom table that houses vendor credentialing fields. It's an actual lawson.zuapven table so I can query and upload to it. But I cannot query and upload to the vendor credentialing program. That feed has to happen through IT and cloverleaf.

    Any other kind of "jailbreak" isn't possible as far as I know. The other program you are attempting to load to would also have to be majorly modified to accept the excel information I would think.
