Need to connect to ddf file via vb6. I need a ddf control for that. Where is that control.

Please help


RE: New to btrieve

You can use ADO or DAO or something like that.  The way we do it is that we have our DDF and a DSN set up that links the DDF to the data - we then use ADO in our VB6 that connects to the DSN - our connection string is as follows:

Provider=MSDASQL.1;Persist Security Info=False;Data Source=Corporate"

Corporate would be our DSN name.

Alternatively you can use the transactional method - I don't have any detail to hand relating to that - I think you need the Pervasive Developer's kit.

There is a Pervasive:Btrieve (Forum321) and a Pervasive:Pervasive.SQL (Forum318) forum on this sight - you may find them useful.
