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

Bonev,

Your comments have been helpful and are appreciated.  Is there a way to give you a portion of the points?

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

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.
