    What are you looking to do? Are you trying to use ODBC or get to the data outside of DacEasy? If so, you should look for DDFs. They'll define the record structure for ODBC.

    Here's a few links:
    http://www.pervasive.com - Pervasive/Btrieve home page
    http://www.goldstar-sw.com/btrvodbc.asp - Goldstar Software's white paper on ODBC access to Btrieve files.
    If you need DDFs (don't have the) for DacEasy, you need to contact them and get the DDFs from them.

    Most of the info on those web sites are too general so I guess that I am missing something so...

    If I have DacEasy 12 installed which is using the Pervasive.SQL 2000i engine what else do I need to access the data. I am use VB what connection string should I use. What DDFs? There are DDFs for Cystal, etc.????

    DDFs are Data Dictionary Files and they describe the record structure for ODBC/Crystal/ or Anything that needs access to the files outside of the application.
    The connection string depends on what interface (ODBC/OLEDB) you are using. Since you're using VB, check out this white paper: http://www.pervasive.com/documentati...Whitepaper.pdf
