How could I work with MDB databases in Delphi 2.

What about Delphi 3?

You can use ODBC towards Access 95 & 97 from Delphi 2.0
and the same + DAO (native access) from Delphi 3.0.

Be very careful because you'll find differences between the two.

Hi

You can use Access 95 & 97 databases with Delphi 3.  (I haven't tried with Delphi 2.)  The Borland Database Engine (BDE) connects natively to Access.  (For Access 97 you will need to get the latest version of the BDE from Borland's (Inprise) web site.)  You create an alias with the BDE admin, and connect as with Paradox tables.

Cheers,
JB

If you have the Client/Server version you can connect natively.
If you don't have the C/S then you can connect only via ODBC.

Ronit:  I have Delphi Professional which also supports connections to Access through the BDE (which uses DAO, not ODBC).
