MS Visual C++ includes full support for DB programming via MFC.  You can create and manipulate MS Access type databases using the MS DAO engine (Data Access Objects) or you can use the ODBC model to connect to SQL databases, Access, Paradox, dBase, Foxpro or Btrieve databases.  The choice is yours.

You can create a personal bookshelf at www.mcp.com (MacMillan Publishing) and view some of their publications online.  One of these is Database Developers Guide using Visual C++ 4, Second Edition ISBN:0-672-30652-2.  While VC++ 4 is a couple of flavours old, the book is still very relevant as the overall MFC DB architecture has not changed.  By viewing this book, you can easily determine if MFC & MS Visual C++ is the model you wish to choose.

The other alternative you may have is Borland's (now Inprise corp.) C++ Builder.  You can find more info at www.inprise.com.
