    dBase Driver for .Net

    Hello once again. I am workin on this project and I was told to read in a .dbf file and parse it correctly I need a dBase Driver for .Net. I have been searching the internet for a couple days now but I cannot find anything on the subject. Does anyone know what driver I need to perform this operation?

    Thanks

    I dont use that format, but OleDbConnection should do it.

    And I think the Jet/OleDB driver whould work through it

    I think Fordy is right, System.Data.OleDb* classes seem the way to go. Heres an example of a connection string:

    "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=c:\folder;Extended Properties=dBASE IV;User ID=Admin;Password="
