I don't have the book, but I do have "Java in 14 days".

Does the book come with a CD or disk in it?
In that case, all you have to do is choose "File | Open" in Delphi 3, then find a file called somehing.DPR (not *.PAS!)

After opening that file, all you have to do to run it is to press F9 (or choose Run | Run).

It would be helpful if you could tell us what exactly your problem is?? You can't open the files? You can't find them? You can't start them? There is no CD/disk??

ffej, like Holger says, delphi programs (projects) have a .DPR extention. To open them, go to File|Open, browse to the directory of the book and pick out an .DPR file. Then run this project (F9 or Run|Run, see Holger). C.u ZiF.
