The purpose of this article is to explain provide an overview of Writing to ARIES

REQUIREMENTS Before Using The ARIES Connector. 


  1. Ensure that you have a 64 bit Office Product
  2. Download 2010 64 bit driver in the download link
  3. Download 2007 32 bit driver in the download link

After these drivers are installed, the Aries Connector(64 bit) and Aries Database(64,32) can now be compatible with both drivers. 

The ARIES Connector manages inputs and outputs of ARIES wells, production, and declines to the Database.

In this article, we will step through an example of how to Write to ARIES from a Database.
