First, I don't really know much about AS/400, but I need to access a AS/400 database (not a DB2 database, but the "default" database installed with the operating system) from a windows environment. I would like to use ODBC. Does anyone know about any good, cheap, reliable ODBC driver capable of handling this?

Thanks.

Once you get a driver like this installed on your system, you can easily examine the tables and data on a 400 database using MS Access by either liniing tables or importing data.
