According to a business development manager here is written in "EXCEL"

They call it the "EXCEL KALK DB"

>> KALK

Looks like the sound some strange bird would make.

Is that some kind of acronym?

MikeP's right on...Germany company KALK = CALC

It was amazing how he was talking about it ... you'd think this thing would actually make us make money...then when I asked whats the backend..hes like all the data's there in EXCEL.

GULP!!

And we are going to use this???? Ya we just need to extract the data into SQL and use it...ya right I ain't doing it!

This project failed 2 years ago when we started it because there was no functional spec, then they went back to using some cheap excel sheet...Then they have the folks in Bremmen Germany whip it up in EXCEL again? That's what I call WWIII

Tell them the world has moved on, and they need to get with the new paradigm: XML KALK

That should buy you another 2 years.
