    Hi, Great article. Is it possible to use the event handlers and copy the document to sql server? I need to take a document that is uploaded into a document library and copy the document to sql server for our external users to access through an web application.

    Hi, Your article caught me eye whilst I was browsing trying to learn about Sharepoint. I am BA not a developer and am trying to work out how to implement SharePoint. One of our directors was under the impression that SharePoint doucments are stored within the database rather than on a file store similar to Lotus Notes. I have not been able to find any information to verify this. My questions are: 1. Can you confirm where SharePoint stores the documents - database or network/file store directory? 2. How difficult is it to migrate/extract documents from SharePoint if you decide in the future to move to another product?

The Eventhandler does not fire or update the database. Any help or recommendation willl be greatly appreciated.
