    remote
    it's like I want to use Cprogramming to connect to a server so that I can modify or update the database in that particular server.

    is it possible?

    If you want to use databases I'm pretty sure the database provider has a driver for this for download. It's called ODBC for Open DataBase Connectivity. If you are using the MFC you can access such datasources using the CDatabase class.

    She was so Blonde, she spent 20 minutes looking at the orange juice can because it said "Concentrate."

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.

    databases like mysql usually have a c api that have have functions that allow you to connect remotely.

    have a look at the mysql c api docs at www.mysql.com.
