Consuming External Data Using SharePoint Server 2010 Business Connectivity Services and Excel 2010 Add-ins

Yesterday was the launch day of the one of the best version of Office including SharePoint. Now the time has started for everyone in the field to get started and start creating creative solutions based on that.

With the launch came the launch of my second article on BCS. This is something on which i was working for last 6 months. This is an article which covers the features like BCS client OM, options to update back the external system, associations between ECT's, deploying the client solutions, client cache, basically everything which you need to know while working on client. You can see the article at

Once again thanks to Arpan, Michal, Uma, Beck, Juan, Russell, Tarkan Sevilimis, Nan Xie for helping out with this.
