    Hi

    Do you have an ODBC driver for MySQL installed? Perhaps that would be a good starting point. Once you have a driver it shouldn't be too difficult to open connections.

    The ODBC driver will sit between your application and the database and allow you to query/manipulate the database with SQL. Once the driver is installed you have a number of ways that you can code it.

    ADO is a good route to go, as it involves very little code. You probably have some help files for ADO with Delphi (I don't really remember, it's a long time since I used Delphi).

    YOU WANT TO CONNECT DELPHI 6 TO MYSQL Database....

    No Problem.

    You have 2 solutions :
    With DBExpress, A little bit hard (but realy good way)

    Or If you want to connect quickly with most powerfull access : you can use ZEOS component (from source forge Zeos Lib) joinned in attached files...

    Use TMySQLTable and TMySQLQuery to connect (TDBMy

    Hope that this will help you.

    No worries mate.

    Y'all makes you sound like you're from here in North Carolina, as all the natives say that here.

    Hope you have some luck with that thing. Keep an eye on the forum as I'll ask a couple of people and see if there's an alternative.
