I would like to connect to a ODBC datasource and avoid using the BDE. Is this possible?

The database driver is Microsoft Access.

Can you please explain the steps that are required to achieve this?

Thankyou.

Running a program using the above ODBC settings works well.

Whilst trying to connect to a ODBC database running a ISAPI 'dll' (IIS4) an error occurs.

"Cannot load IDAPI service library"

DAO 3.0 was installed via Office 97.

Registry setting for DAO3032.dll is correct..

I'm out of ideas......
