Paradox7.0 & Access97

I have a Paradox7.0 table and would like to link to it from Access97. However when I try to establish the link I get an error. I assume the problem is because I only have Paradox5.x ODBC drivers. Where can I get the Paradox7.0 ODBC drivers.

Can I link without the Paradox7.0 drivers.

I make use of Office 97 and have already installed the value pack.

I use paradox for table I create In delphi3.0

Here is a free 30 day trial of drivers from Intersolv (now MicroFocus).

It includes a Paradox driver.  Their drivers usually are fairly solid.  I haven't used them in a while, but you might want to give it a try.

Good Luck,
Martin

why are you using ODBC? Why not use DAO and open the table directly.... Or just right click the database window, select link tables and browse.... The office install gives you the isam drivers....

Why not use DAO and open the table directly?

The reason I'm not using DAO is firstly I don't know what DAO is and secondly the tables that i'm trying to access are part of a Delphi database program. There are approximately 50 tables and to convert them to another structure would mean that the Delphi program has to be relinked to the relavant new tables.

Here is a free 30 day trial of drivers from Intersolv.

I tried the trial version after installing the driver simply doesn't respond.
