To connect to Btrieve you will need the 32-bit ODBC driver from Pervasive Software (The Manufacturer/Author of Btrieve).  I am unsure what costs, if any there are for the driver.

As far as installing, look @
http://www.pervasive-sw.com/support/technical/papers/odbcfts.html

Once the driver is installed, you connect to Btrieve by linking to the ODBC datasource that you define.

BTW, I answered a question for you the other day and I noticed you have not rejected my answer or made additional comments.  Not that I care about the points, I really just wanted to know if the answer was of any use to you...

Mcix is right. Give him his share ! I found out when you use the btrieve driver on a network with netware you also have to include these dll files in the windows\system\ directory for the full 32 bits version:

wbtrv32.dll
w32bricm.dll

w32bticm.dll -> This one only when using Netware or NT
sspxcom.nlm
