The easiest waywould be to create a datasource in windows for your database. (Control panel, Administrative tools)

uses SysUtils, ActiveX, adoDB, DB, ...;

type

  TForm1 = class(TForm)
  :
  private
    FConnection : TADOConnection;
  :
  end;

functionTForm1.DatabaseConnect: Boolean;
begin
  result := TRUE;
  OleInitialize(nil);
  FConnection := TADOConnection.Create(NIL);
  FConnection.LoginPrompt := TRUE;
  FConnection.ConnectionString := PromptDataSource(0, '');
  try
    FConnection.Open;
  except
    result := FALSE;
  end;
end;

procedure TForm1.DatabaseDisconenct;
begin
  FConnection.Close;
  FreeAndNil(FConnection);
  OleUninitialize;
end;

If you do not want to have the promt dialog every time, you can also give the connection string explicitly. Example for a mySQL Database (the mentioned driver must be installed, check in the datasource dialog):

function TForm1.DatabaseConnect(databaseServer, databaseName, username, password: String): Boolean;
var connectionString : String;
begin
  result := TRUE;
  OleInitialize(nil);
  FConnection := TADOConnection.Create(NIL);
  FConnection.LoginPrompt := FALSE;
  connectionString := 'DRIVER={MySQL ODBC 3.51 Driver}; ' +
                       'SERVER=' + databaseServer + '; '   +
                       'DATABASE=' + databaseName + '; '   +
                       'UID=' + username + '; '            +
                       'PWD=' + password + '; '            +
                       'OPTION=3';
  FConnection.ConnectionString := connectionString;
  try
    FConnection.Open;
  except
    result := FALSE;
  end;
end;
