Hi ,
We need to connect with Simply Accounting Pro 2010 database (even if it is sample database) from .Net (C#).
We want to get table list and other stuff that is less important now, without ability to connect with db (first).

We are in a very critical time and fast solution will be very welcomed.

Best regards

Probably you can find an sdk in the following folder: The SDK contains a sample with many examples. Look under c:\program files\Simply accounting 2010 SDK\sample

If it's a sage database, try this:
For those of you who are trying to create a link from a .NET application to Sage. Here's how I did it:

Dim con As New Odbc.OdbcConnection("Driver={Sage Line 50 v14};DIR=D:\SAGEDatabase\COMPANY.003\ACCDATA;UseDataPath=No;UID=manager;PWD=mypassword")

Dim cmd As Odbc.OdbcCommand = con.CreateCommand

cmd.CommandText = "SELECT ACCOUNT_REF FROM SALES_LEDGER WHERE ACCOUNT_REF LIKE 'SA%'"
       
Try
  con.Open()
  lbl.Text = cmd.ExecuteScalar
Catch ex As Exception
  lbl.Text = ex.Message
  Exit Sub
Finally
  con.Close()
End Try
