I desperately need to write new records and updates to a number of Paradox *.db files.  

I have tried several connection strings, all of which give an error: "ServerVersion = 'cn.ServerVersion' threw an exception of type 'System.InvalidOperationException'"

What is the best approach to access Paradox files?  Please advise how to make a connection or find a VS tool to accomplish this.

Terrific!  It had all the steps I needed.  Apparently the connection strings were working.  All I needed to do was to open the conn and fill up a datatable.
