And of course MSDN, no I am not a fan of MS, I just program for their systems. So why not use their resources to help us work around their bugs and sometimes strange implementations of good ideas (COM / DCOM).
register if you haven't done yet and goto the microsoft search
site and your answers about all their stuff.

thank you all

i have played around with DDE but i am still haveing trouble. all i want to do is to send some small data (a string) from Delphi to Access.

Simplistically, i want to have a variable in Access which I can read and write to using DDE. I can't seem to set a variable in Access. I will post this as a separate question...
