Besides installed BDE - you should add ODBC/BDE alias/link to database file.

Yes, I installed BDE on this machine. How can I create this ODBC/DBE alias. My database is .mdb and is located on my server.

Look at small tut - how to set BDE alias:
http://www.dbasehost.com/tutorials/mysql4.php
Mdb file is a ms access database - and you should know how app connect to odbc/bde.
Your alias name is SociosAccess (from you picture). If your app use Ado components then you need to set ODBC alias only (maybe is this a case):
- in odbc administrator - under system tab - click Add
- locate Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb) and select
- fill under Data Source Name: SociosAccess
- click on select and browse for mdb file somewhere (shared/maped folders)
- click ok - and that should be all for odbc

(if you use TQuery, TTable components (BDE) in app - you should do besides odbc - changes in BDE too)
