Under 32-bit Windows you can use DAO. Unfortunately DAO is not available under Windows 3.x and I'm not aware of any other alternative to ODBC.

90% of attacks start with a phish. It’s critical that IT admins and MSSPs have the right security in place to protect their end users from these phishing attacks. Check out our latest feature brief for tips and tricks to keep your employees off a hackers line!

I need also to access the data from 16 bit platforms.  DAO is restricted to 32 bits.  Is there a 16 bit solution.

Bonev, Why don't you just submit an answer to the question.  I see no way to reduce the points.  Though you did not have the answer I was looking for, your comments led me to an alternate solution.  (We decided to break down and use ODBC).  So you should be entitled to the points.  Thanks
