You must Start-Up the database. Then just open it with a Delphi TDataBase and TTables/TQueries (you know).

To start - up the database start the

Interbase Server Manager

on the menu

File - Server Login

Select the server name (or type it), select the protocol, then the user name and password.

Then again File

File - DataBase Connect

Here select the path and name of your database file.

Finally, under Maintenance

Maintenance - Database Restart

And with this it should work

To prove it: open an Interactive SQL window and just make a select of a table you know ther should data.

Hope it helps

Felix
