VB Databases - codebase, etc

Hi,

I've been writing some CGI programs in VB using the CGI4VB stdin/stdout library and Access databases.

Obviously Access databases are a pretty crappy way of doing things due to slowness and the size of the db engine, etc.

I've been looking at the Codebase DB library by Sequitter software and wondered if anyone has had any experience with this or any similar products and how well they work.

I don't want to use a db server as this over complicates things for what I'm doing.

Comments would be appreciated.

Thanks

Hi,

Unfortunately I'm going to sell these CGI programs and can't insist that all my clients have Office 2000 installed to use it.

Thanks
