    I have the same problem, and AFAIK, there is no simple solution or even any solution at all :-((

    I transfer some data betwen the two using .txt files (which can be hardly called a "solution" to the problem) but have no direct connection .DBF/Btrieve.

    Having not worked with Clipper, I have no direct experience but I've found that any environment that allows exported functions to be called from DLLs can be used to access Btrieve. The Btrieve API is very well defined in the SDK documents. If you want to use ODBC instead, then Clipper would need to be able to call ODBC.
