Ummm... maybe just me, but if you say this question's worth 300 points, why don't you make it 300 points?

(I'm getting a little paranoid here, cuz there are always people trying to cheat out of paying points).

If you mean DBASE 4 you can use Database Desktop which comes with Delphi

hi again,

here it is

unit db_simple_edit_u;

interface

uses
  Windows, Messages, SysUtils, Classes, Graphics, Controls, Forms, Dialogs,
  Db, DBTables, Grids, DBGrids, DBCtrls, StdCtrls, ExtCtrls;

type
  TForm1 = class(TForm)
    Panel1: TPanel;
    Button1: TButton;
    DBNavigator1: TDBNavigator;
    DBGrid1: TDBGrid;
    Table1: TTable;
    DataSource1: TDataSource;
    OpenDialog1: TOpenDialog;
    procedure Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
  private
    { Private declarations }
  public
    { Public declarations }
  end;

var
  Form1: TForm1;

implementation

{$R *.DFM}

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
  if opendialog1.execute then
  begin
    Table1.Close;
    Table1.DatabaseName := ExtractFileDir(opendialog1.Filename);
    Table1.TableName := ExtractFileName(opendialog1.Filename);
    try
      table1.Open;
      Panel1.Caption := 'File : '+opendialog1.Filename;
    except
      raise;
    end;
  end;
end;

end.


requirements, bde installed, no alias must be defined,
works on dbase and paradox files

Hey borgo, all of us provide a good solution I think, so that you have to divide this point between all the people here :-)

Hi to all of you and thanks for the answers.

I'm not trying to cheat you nrico.
I have posted that question in more areas inside EE so I could give the points only after I get a good answer.

I'd like to know if with your solutions I can save every changes I meade into the table in the same format (DBASE4)

Thank you

hi borgo,

you should be more specific.
the change of an fieldvalue will not result in a restructure.

Sure you will stay with the same format if you use Database Desktop.
