I am using Delphi Develper (2.0) and have just completed my first DB program.  However, when I try to build the disks with InstallShield, it says it is missing a file which is used by the BDE.  

However, after searching through my hard drives for this elusive file, I cannot find it!  I then checked the CD and it was still no where to be found.

Giving up in exaperation, I though I would delete the refrence to this file and try that.  No problem at all. Installed like a charm.  However, upon installing it on another computer, the application did not work!  The alias was not created and the database files where missing.

Can some one please help me with this.

Thanks in advance.

PS.  The file in question is IDODBC32.DLL

Post your e-mail address in a comment, and I will e-mail you the file in question.  I have it in my BDE directory, as should you.
