Hi out there. I'm slightly new to VC++, I'm good in VB ;-). My question is, what is the easiest way to connect to an Access Database without using any of the MFC-Stuff. I want to do a proggie that I wrote in VB, that connects to a *.mdb file and mainly adds Records to a specific recordset, and all this in VC++ without touching the MFC. Hmmm... I hope I described my question well. How can I do this and maybe where can I find sites about this?
Thanks in advance...

I wont use the MFC cause it blows up the App. You have to use the MFC-DLL and I just wanna the whole thing just using API's. Maybe difficult to understand, but I want it this way.

ODBC API? Wher can I get infos on this API, or examples??

All of the "direct" ODBC functions begin with "SQL".  Open your MSDN Library and on the Index tab, type SQLBinCol, this is the first function.

The section in the SDK is the:

Platform SDK
 >Data Access Services
  >Microsoft SQL Server Programmers Toolkit
   >Build SQL Server Applications
    >OBDC and SQL Server
     >SQL Server ODBC Driver Programmers Reference
      >ODBC API Implementation Details

It's hard to find since it's buried so deeply in the tree....

Good luck, it's a real pain to do this w/o MFC but it certainly CAN be done.

Thanks, maybe thats the way. I thought learning by example is better, but it seems everybody is using MFC.
