.dbf .mdx files.

Hi,
   I have a piece of software that outputs .mdx .dbf database files.  I'm not sure what kind of database files there are, but I think VB can read them, Delphi I think?  I was wondering if anyone has code to read these into VB and
how to output them into a control.

Thanks in advance,
Aaron

DBF and .MDX are Paradox database files. DBF are actual data, where .MDX are indexes. There are a number of shareware/freeware components out there, or you can probably get a hold of the OBDC drivers from M$ for Paradox.

Good luck!!

do a search for "Paradox Activex" on download.com, there's a nice selection of sharewares there. I program primarily in Delphi, so it's not something I too much call for,myself. <g>

Good luck!!

They are dBase files. If you have Access, just link them to you Access database. Then you can look at them like any other tables. Link them as dbase III or dbase IV the drivers come with Access.
