What are the parameters of the data Providers?

The parameters of the data Providers in Spatial Manager™ for GstarCAD are the settings that the application needs to connect when reading (importing) or writing (exporting) spatial tables or files by using a given data Provider. Certain data Providers need the reading parameters and the writing parameters, and these settings can be different. Some other data Providers will only need the reading or the writing parameters but not both of them. You will see a parameters window every time the application needs them when running a given import or export process
