C++ Builder certainly supports ODBC and probably ADODB interfaces.  

I also suspect there are some DB specific class libraries included that wrap these, similar to Microsoft MFC's CDatabase and CDaoDatabase classes.

I'm not that familiar with C++ Builder.  I'm sure there is a class for DB access.  Have you looked at your product documentation?

You will need to use the BDE Administrator or create a DSN that will connect to your DB.

If you're using a DSN to connect to your DB then use the ODBC DataSource under control panel.

If you wish to use the native drivers from Borland you will need to change the native drivers dll based on your Access version.

I used both method and then are both working fine. You might found the BDE Administrative way faster retrieve data from the database.

Good luck!
