These 2 companies should be able to provide the driver you need.

Hi, Pragash.

I recently asked a question like yours.

Here is what I found:
1. Our company is using Pervasive SQL v7.
The newest version is Pervasive SQL 2000.  Either one will allow access through ODBC, OLE-DB, and ADO.  Personally, I use it through OLE-DB.

(Sample Connection String)
Driver=Pervasive Software ODBC-32;
DATAPATH=G:\Temp\Btrieve Data;
DDFPATH=G:\Temp\DDF\Btr_DDF

2. The link to the Pervasive website that member "dpd0809" is probably not precise enough.

http://www.pervasive.com/downloads/index.asp

Also, the "Colibri Products" mentioned at the [http://www.sw.com.sg/products/oledb/] (broken link) are no longer offered.

These are the actual links:
http://old.sw.com.sg/products/db/
http://old.sw.com.sg/products/BtrieveODBC/
(Notice that they no longer offer or support those products.)

Hey, Pragash.

Just cleaning up questions here.

Did you ever find an answer to your question?
Did the suggestions posted here help you?
If they did not, then please tell us.
If they did, then please accept the suggestion as the
answer and give a good grade.

If you need any more help, please tell us.  Currently, I use the Pervasive SQL OLE-DB driver from my VB and Visual FoxPro programs to read MV90 databases.

Also, if dpd0809's proposed answer is not the right one,
then reject it.

You have a week before I bring this question to the
attention of the moderators.  Please respond by then.

Bye. -e2
