That should not be a problem at all, if you have the proper drivers installed, you can access the specific database though the Intrbase engine.

I am using Apollo 4.0 because it's small, about 300K, but with BDE engine it's too big.

Hmmm.. I've have had success (not with Apollo 4) with inserting the exact same parameters from the BDE-manager into the Database Objects params-strings. I can show you how I did with dBase, where I never configured a BDE-engine at first.

I don't know if this would be any help to you, but you may try configure your database like, but not exact this way:

    db1 := TDatabase.create(nil);
    db1.databasename := 'DBElev';
    db1.drivername   := 'INTRBASE';

    db1.params.clear;
    db1.params.add('SERVER NAME=C:\DBELEV.GDB');
    db1.params.add('USER NAME=SYSDBA');
    db1.params.add('OPEN MODE=READ/WRITE');
    db1.params.add('SCHEMA CACHE SIZE=8');
    db1.params.add('LANGDRIVER=');
    db1.params.add('SQLQRYMODE=');
    db1.params.add('SQLPASSTHRU MODE=SHARED AUTOCOMMIT');
    db1.params.add('SCHEMA CACHE TIME=-1');
    db1.params.add('MAX ROWS=-1');
    db1.params.add('BATCH COUNT=200');
    db1.params.add('ENABLE SCHEMA CACHE=FALSE');
    db1.params.add('SCHEMA CACHE DIR=');
    db1.params.add('PASSWORD=masterkey');

    db1.loginprompt  := false;
    db1.connected    := true;

    DBase:= TQuery.create(nil);
    DBase.databaseName:= 'DBElev';
    DBase.requestLive:= true


Good luck!

Cheers
Williams
