    Unanswered: Delphi 5 and MS SQL 2008?

    Hi,

    I am looking to use Delphi V5 with MS SQL 2008, but I cannot seem to find a database driver which will allow me to do it.

    Currently the only way I can get it to work is by;
    Upgrading to Delphi V6/7
    Moving to Delphi.net
    Using SQL 2005 instead.

    However I would prefer to leave Delphi 5 in place as I am having enough problems changing over my database.
    Anyone have any ideas how I can get this working?

    Thanks
    Alan

    I haven't actually tried this with Delphi 5, but it has worked for every other IDE/Language that I've ever used so it would shock me if you couldn't just use the standard MS-Windows ODBC drivers on whatever client system you're using.

    In theory, theory and practice are identical. In practice, theory and practice are unrelated.

    What also works on almost every database is Delphi 5 ADO (ADOConnection, ADOTable etc) toghether with an ODBC data source. I have D5 aps running that way on Oracle, Sybase, MS, Firebird DBs.


    just to mention, I have downgraded from Delphi 7 to Delphi 5.
