How to access Interbase (GBD) database files directly without a server using C# or .Net?
Posted on 2008-06-26
I have been handed a Interbase 5 GDB file to generate a sales report by developing a customised program in C#/.Net.
The passwords/userid to access the GDB has also been provided, so was the schema.
Assuming that i do not have access to a Interbase server to load the database file, nor am i allowed to run a server (IB/FB), is there anyway i can access the GDB file directly and locally without the use of a server?
Something like Microsoft Access .MDB files where all i need is the MDB to access the file and nothing else.
My developing environment is Visual Studio 2005.
Many thanks in advance!
