Make sure that "DB" in the uses clause
Call getAliasParams to obtain the details (filepath etc) of  alias eg. session.GetAliasParams( 'alias name', aStringListVar);

hope this help.  kjteng

Hi
I would rather use the following function :

it uses

uses db, dbtables, bde;

the function is

FUNCTION GetDir(hDB: hDbiDb): STRING;
VAR
     Dir: STRING;
BEGIN
     SetLength(Dir, dbiMaxPathLen + 1);
     Check(DbiGetDirectory(hDB, False, PChar(Dir)));
     SetLength(Dir, StrLen(PChar(Dir)));
     Result := Dir;
END;

a call example :

cheminBDD := getDir(datamodule2.TSoc.DBHandle);
