does anyone have an idea about how i can connect sugarcrm 6.5.* to an external database?
I'm making a new module but i want it to read some fields from an external database
how can i do that?
You can handle it through logic hooks process_record (ListView/Subpanels/Dashlets) and after_retrieve (DetailView/EditView) for such module.
You can either connect to external database through builtin mysql_connect or even let SugarCRM does it by DBManager::getTypeInstance.
