Need help re Model 204

    Disclosure: I know nothing!

    We are hoping to hire someone to help us with interacting with this database:

    We have spreadsheets with information.It’s just one piece of information per student. We don’t want to data entry it. Is it possible to create a program at the terminal that will automatically interact with the interface? Any way to estimate how costly/difficult this would be?

    Hi Mr. Grannis -

    Yes, it’s possible to reach a Model 204 database from Excel or other spreadsheet packages. How you program the interface depends on your specific needs - is this a one-time data load, for instance, or would it be regularly updated? Maybe you want dynamic content for a single student at a time?

    As with all things technical, the devil’s in the details, of course. But yes, what you’re asking for is possible as long as NYCDOE has provided the necessary ports.
