To create an SQL SMS Gateway with Ozeki NG, you can use an Access database,
which can be accessed using an ADO or ODBC driver.
All you have to do is create two database tables (in the ozekisms
ozekimessagein and ozekimessageout.
(The tables can have additional columns.) Ozeki NG will insert the
incoming messages in to the ozekimessagein table. T o send a message,
you should insert a record into the ozekimessageout table. The SMS
this table periodically for messages to send.

When you are finished, click the Create button.
Right-click Table1:Table, and left-click Design View.
In the Save As window, enter ozekimessagein.
Enter the field names and the data types in the respective columns. Make sure
the data type of the msg field is Memo. This way, it
