Thanks for the prompt reply. We purchased the Connection Agent when we signed up for Perfect Forms, and have installed it successfully.

We’re trying have forms pass data into our Progress database. If I’m reading the User Guide correctly, that means we need to establish a Database Connection. The Perfect Forms API seems to be something used for reading data from, and writing data to, a form. Since that’s not what we’re trying to do, I don’t think the Perfect Forms API is the right place to start. Is that correct?

We’re trying to keep cost and system complexity down with this integration, so purchasing a license for SQL or MySQL and maintaining a database mirror is something we’re trying to avoid. Thanks for the suggestion, however.
