Hi All,

 

I am a Python newbie so please be gentle on me.

 

I have created a program that takes text files within a directory and it
successfully parses the information from them to create 3 CSV files. 

 

However, I now want to update some tables in MSAccess, and it occurred
to me that because Sequel Server 2000 DTS can interface with scripting
languages that maybe I could call my first Python program from within
DTS and then update the tables using DTS. (I am learning DTS hence the
idea).

 

My questions are:

Has anyone used Python within DTS?

Am I off the wall trying such a thing?

 

With regard to the second question: IMHO Python is an elegant language
(thanks Guido) and I just want to use it wherever I can. 

 

Thanks,

 

Phil
