    If your new to databases, your biggest problem will be learning SQL. So learn SQL first, and then learn library the database library uses to send the SQL statements to the database.

    Look-up COM, DCOM, and ODBC. Also, there is a C++ Library for MySQL

    You should not ask for email unless it's really a private matter. The public forum allows us all to learn from each other's questions & answers. If you can take the time online to check your email, you can check-back here once-a-day.

    Plus, it's a bad idea to post your email address on the net... There are programs that automacially scan the net for email addresses, so they can sell your email address to the spammers! You can use the forum's Private Message feature to exchange messages (and/or email addresses) with other members.

    DougDbug, he should be able to set up his profile so that new posts automatically get emailed to him.

    DCOM is un-needed, ODBC is old, but you'll do well to know COM. The you can either go the whole hog and learn the OLEDB API, or do as most people do and learn ADO. That will than give you access to pretty much any windows database (via OLEDB drivers or ODBC) as well as other datasources.

    In Dev-C++ you can check site www.devpaks.org or in program Tools->Check for updates/packages...

    There you can find few DB API's. As far as I know there are at least MySQL, PostgreSQL and SQLite API's.
