ISyncDataConverter Interface

SQL Server 2008 R2

When implemented, converts data between two providers that synchronize the same type of data, such as contacts information, but transfer that data in a different format. If the providers retrieve data by using an interface other than ISynchronousDataRetriever or IAsynchronousDataRetriever, you must also supply an implementation for data retriever conversion.


interface ISyncDataConverter : IUnknown
