I have a database from a Win 3.1 application that I think was originally written on the Macintosh in OMNIS-7, then ported to Windows.  I want to do SQL calls against this file from a VB or C++ program.  All I can tell is that the file extension of the database is .df1.  Question:  is there a driver, either ODBC-compliant or proprietary, that will let me read from this database?

Yes it is OMNIS (by Blyth software) - go to the web site and check.  They do have ODBC support and also do have a Windows versio of their application (if that helps).

Web site for OMNIS is http://www.omnis-software.com/
