Connection between DbasePlus 9 with Firebird database

Connection between DbasePlus 9 with Firebird database

Hi There

Would any one show me how to connect firebird database with dbase plus 9 ( i'm very new to dbase plus )

I installed firebird and tried to connect via BDE but there was no name to use in the list for firebird.

Thank you

RE: Connection between DbasePlus 9 with Firebird database

I didn't know that DBase still existed! I haven't heard of it for 20 years. And I haven't used the BDE for about the same time. I seem to remember there was a Database Explorer that you used to set up a BDE connection. But don't expect any help from Embarcadero in connecting to Firebird!

I would suggest that you use ADO for your connection. I don't use that either but the BDE was clumsy.
