I want to make the database of the application I am developing available to other applications for things like mail-merges, how would I go about doing this? I know that the tables I use are Paradox version 5. The version of Delphi I am using is version 1.

The best way to do that would be to export your data as a "Comma Separated Values" file (a.k.a CSV). All that this entails is traversing down your database and writing each record to a text file with a comma between each of the field values and with each line in the text file being a record from the database.

I was wondering if this CSV could be updated programatically, so that my client does not have to go through each record, cutting and pasting...

BadBart,

Applications that support CSV will automatically import the file and there will be no need for cutting and pasting....
