 I would like to link an update script which will be working against 
another database using ODBC, thus I might as well, ( and perhaps I can 
run against this other 'live' database).

 Also I am looking at dumping the sql database to the text files at some 
regular intervalls, ( in case I would loose my connectivity and ability 
to do live updates), probably after each update.

 Thus I can have a hosted server with updated info from a business 
system, ( CRM ), located at another place and still have good 
availability in case of  a network outage.
