How about ODBC?

URk... Yet another thing to learn.  I might just stick to messy automaton for now.  I think I can implement thingsusing a less-messy-than-I-first-though method, which I'll do.  

Post it as an answer though, I think ODBC would be the way to go if I had the time.  (I've been teaching myself VC++ as I go, trying to automate as much stuff as possible before things get really busy)

I agree with U
