How to query a database located on an FTP server with C# code??? Or use ColdFusion in a .NET app??? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am looking to query a database located on an FTP server instead of downloading a copy to the local computer and then using the ADO tools to query the database and fill a DataGrid etc.


    I've heard from my colleagues that they have a ColdFusion query that simply queries a database on our FTP server for the data it needs, and doesnt have to download it first....


    My problem is that I am using a dataset and TableAdapter to load the info from a local database and querying this database would destroy all of the work I have done using the above objects.


    Is there even a way to use a ColdFusion query to obtain info from a database and then use that information in a .NET application??


    Please help!
