Getting Data Using from CSV file or SQL Server Data Management RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm working with sharepoint 2013 and was asked to find some data from the site collections. I have a list of site collection names stored in a table in database but my manager asked to use a CSV file instead. I'm trying to find out the pros and cons. Is there a distinct disadvantage of using SQL vs CSV file?

  • The only difference is portability.  A Csv can be used without a server.  A DB is more stable and easier to maintain.  The issue is a design issue that can only be decided between you and your manager.
