    Hi Kiran,

    If you want to get a feel for the product you can start by looking at the appropriate Sample Gallery project for your platform. This contains a set of sample layouts that connect to various data sources and use various features in the pivot view.

    Once you are ready to start using the product with your own data, I highly recommend taking a look at the help for v2 of the product. We did a lot of work to revamp the user guide for this version so more useful information will be available to you.

    We have more help content coming over the next few weeks as we get closer to the final release.

    Hello Kiran,

    I have attached a small sample webapplication with this email. You would need to change the connectionstring in this sample to connect Nwind hosted in SQL 2005.
    You may also find Web Viewer solution and Web Sample gallery solution installed here:
    C:\Documents and Settings\UserName\My Documents\Data Dynamics\Analysis
    Also take a look at this link.

    Let me know if you need more help.
