    Unanswered: Data stream and SQL

    Hi all,

    I am just trying to establish if there is a way that I can capture a direct data stream(feed) from another server and have it input into a table.

    The scenario is -
    I have a PABX that is outputting a stream of data with each record being 83 characters long. Each of the fields is seperated by a space. The end of the record is distinguished by a "Line Feed". The port it is being sent to on my local machine is Port 5000.

    Is this possible to do or not? I know that some of our DB guys who use oracle can do it, I would like to have this as a MSSQL database so that I can use it and manipulate it a bit further.

    So, the PORT is the output or the port is what you can connect to with TCP?
    "The data in a record depends on the Key to the record, the Whole Key, and
    nothing but the Key, so help me Codd."

    Port 5000 is set on my SQL Server that the information (from PABX) is sent to. So I need to capture information from this allocated TCP port.
