Ozeki NG SMS Gateway

MS Office Access 2007


To create an SQL SMS Gateway with Ozeki NG, you can use an Access database, which can be accessed using an ADO or ODBC driver. All you have to do is create two database tables (in the ozekisms database): ozekimessagein and ozekimessageout. (The tables can have additional columns.) Ozeki NG will insert the incoming messages in to the ozekimessagein table. T o send a message, you should insert a record into the ozekimessageout table. The SMS Server checks this table periodically for messages to send.

Creating the database and the tables

Start MS Access 2007. Click the round icon and then the New menu item. In the right of the window, enter ozekisms.accdb in the File name field. Using the folder icon next to it, you can select the folder where you would like to save it (the default directory is C:\). When you are finished, click the Create button.
