Is it the Alias Name for the BDE ?
In that case you should also let the installshield install the Borland Database Engine.

You can do this by selecting the merge module BDE.
Then you have to define a ini file with the database type and alias name. Thats by clicking with the right mouse.

u mey create alias by program

lets say u have a 3 queries and one table in your aplication time

and all of them is in the bde alias called  bdealias

u put one database compnet on the main form
 with name database1
double click on database1
in teh aliasname put the alias   bdealias

click on button defaults

u will see the parametars of the database

in the name put somethin like progalias

change the database name of all of your components to progalias

u mey acces the parametars wit database1.params[0]

for example if u see in the parametars

PATH=E:\borland\Borland Shared\Data

u mey change the first parametars with command in the create event of the main form


with this u make a program alias which is always in the same path like your application

easy arent ?
