We are getting ready buy business software that doesn't come with UPS worldship integration.  So, I've been tasked with making it happen.  The software is based on sql server 2000.  Does anyone know where I can find information on how to get worldship to talk to the database?

We use UPS Worldship over here.  I've only imported and exported a couple of times from a CD (20,000 records), but it does have a driver for SQL Server.  However, I've not used it.  Generally, I import with .csv or .dbf.  A UPS tech once told me the fastest way to import/export is using Access, especially for large tables as Access is the default driver.  The also suggested you network this machine, which may solve your problem.  Maybe export to a table and set up a DTS package for imports from that table?

Be forewarned, exports are pretty slow(for us there is more data on the way out than in) and can be somewhat quirky.  

As a matter of fact, Version 7.0 was just realesed and may be more user friendly than 6.0.

You can link to your SQL Server Data Live through ODBC to UPS Worldship
This uses a key field such as order number to populate everything imaginable to completely fill in UPS worldship shipping label including emailing the customer tons of information it also can get back the UPS tracking number, weight etc,etc to automatically insert into your SQL server table after the shipment is made.
More information is available than you could ever want.
Just need to create an Import map and or and Export Map and provide the ODBC DSN.
