You can use pretty much any database with Delphi standard using the BDE. The BDE natively supports Paradox, DBase, Microsoft Access, Interbase and Foxpro. But the BDE also allows you to use the ODBC, through which you can use almost all database types as long as you have the right ODBC drivers.

Once you can connect to the database, the access is controlled by the database security, which differs enormously between databases.

About the only DB that I've found thus far that requires add ons to access is btrieve. (You can read records with the standard drivers, but cannot edit or write to files without third party drivers/tools)

Hello

  With the standard Edition of delphi, you don't have any access to any database, I didn't use any standard edition of the Delphi, but if you looking to the feature matrix of delphi for the database you will find to database support with the standard edition for more info look at

Delphi 4 (the only one I found some support for the DB in the standard edition)
http://www.borland.com/delphi/del4/del4sku.html

delphi 5
http://www.borland.com/delphi/del5/featurelist/database.html

delphi 6
http://www.borland.com/delphi/del6/featurematrix/database.html

but equivalent to use pro or enterprise edition, you can buy some component to connect the the databases, they will be more cheaper than to buy the pro edition of delphi

look at this site to find some Direct DB component
