    Unanswered: How do I connect to My Paradox 8 table?

    I am trying to create my own end user program using Visual Basic 6.0 and Corel Paradox. The Intersolv OBDC drive that came with the Paradox is on a trial period basis. If i want to purchase the Driver it will cost $600. What other options do I have?
    Should I try to create my own driver?
    SHould I down grade my tables to 5.0 and use the free Microsoft drive?

    I don't understand what you're trying to do...

    If you're using Corel Paradox, why the hell are you using Visual Basic 6 to create the front end? Just use Corel paradox, and you will be able to connect directly to v8 tables, even without the overhead of the ODBC connection...

    By the way, VB is an horrid language, which tries to be OOP but messes all up in a damn way...

    Just go for the real thing: open up Paradox and begin writing forms in it with objectPAL, which is a serious language, well made, seriously OOP (albeit not with all the functions of a full featured Delphi) and use the runtime to deploy your apps.
    The only failure is not trying to do it.
