Is there a DataAssist Tutorial that is current?

Is there a DataAssist Tutorial that is current?

I'm sorry guys, I'm just getting very frustrated here. I bought the SuperSuite which includes DataAssist 2.1.0 but the "DataAssist - Getting Started Guide" seems to be referencing an earlier version of the extension. I am unable to find any such thing as a "Blue Sky Music datasource" either on my computer (from the downloaded files) or on the WebAssist site. The instructions for accessing the DataAssist Wizard in DW don't seem to apply to CS6 because none of my WA extensions are available under INSERT except for eCart and Preset Manager. Everything else is under the WA menu. There is no menu item there for "DataAssist Wizard" only DataAssist Pages and DataAssist Search Wizard. So right away I'm lost trying to use DataAssist. Can I get some help here? Is there a real tutorial for DA anywhere on the WA site?

Since Data Assist was moved to Data Bridge, any current tutorials will be listed under Data Bridge and not Data Assist.

If you go to the Support Section of our web site and choose Data Bridge from the dropdown you will find a dozen or so tutorials about working with the new Data Assist functionality.

The new DataAssist functionality is located in the menu location WebAssist->Database->DataAssist Pages

There is also a number of tuts on the webassist youtube channel for most of the extensions.

In all honesty though Phil, I would say stick at it because the extensions created by webassist really are just about the best you could buy for database integration. Yes, there is frustration in progress of learning about these extensions, but the code they create is spot on most of the time, and if it's not, then the help from the WA team is second to none... and that is what is most valuable about the extensions.
