I've created a Delphi 5 application that reads and writes to an Act! 2000 database using the ACTOLE Database object.  fActDB:=CreateOLEObject('ACTOLE.Database');
This works fine however recently our customer has expressed an interest in using Act2007.
I know Act! have made big changes to their sdk using ACT! Framework technology.
Is it still possible to access data in Act 2007 using the 'ACTOLE.Database' object or do I have to move to the .Net framework?

Thanks, Ruairi
