A few db questions...
Posted on 1998-07-29
I'm new to this, so be a little patient if I ask stupid questions.
I want to write a database application in Delphi, but there are a few things I want to be sure about.
1. Is it possible to work with components (to access the db) and use at the same time a relative path? This leads to the 2nd question:
2. If I deploy my application on another computer, what do I have to think off? I suppose I have to include my db tables (Paradox) in some directory. Does this have to be the same directory as the .exe file? Do I have to include other files (setting from the BDE, for example)?
I don't thinks this is very difficult stuff for experienced Delphi programmers as you are :-) , but please take your time to explain things carefully (if possible, give me an example).
