When the ttable instance is viewed in the object inspector, if the databasename or tablename are clicked
a message appears "an error occurred while attempting to initialize the Borland Database Engine
(error $2A06)". The component is impossible to configure.

This program has worked for many months before this happened.  Something has changed. I'm
baffled!  Any and all suggestions will be appreciated.

When you click those fields in the object inspector the IDE tries to connect to your database through the BDE engine. So, and this is a guess as i don't know all the details, the problem could be that you recently reinstalled the computer and forgot to install the BDE drivers, or something happened to those drivers an you might need to reinstall them.

The problem is solved.  Some wise ass got into my machine and changed my "users and Password" group setting from Administrators to a lower permission.  This prevented access to some files and screwed everything up.  I think the access was accomplished by logging in as administrator.  In windows 2k if no password is set for the administrator, it is wide open.  

Thanks to those who shared my frustration

When the ttable instance is viewed in the object inspector's Delphi 2007, if the databasename or tablename are clicked a message appears "an error occurred while attempting to initialize the Borland Database Engine
(error $2A06)". The component is impossible to configure. The BDE is installed, the Database Desktop works correctly, and also some applications that use the BDE works fine. The problem is exclusive from the Delphi 2007 IDE
