Communicating With Databases
Communicating with databases
One of the most important capabilities of the
statements in AIMMS is its ability to transfer data with ODBC-compliant
databases. Although there are similarities between the basic concepts of
data storage in databases and those in AIMMS, they are sufficiently
different to justify a separate chapter in this manual.
This chapter deals with the intricacies of data transfer from and to
databases. It first discusses the link between data in AIMMS and a table
in a database. Then it explains the database-specific requirements
WRITE statements. Next comes a discussion
on how to access stored procedures, followed by a description how to
send SQL statements directly to a particular data source.
