    :: Thread moved to the Windows Forum ::
    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]

    There's the old SQL API, the old DAO objects that are part of MFC, the rather big and complex OLEDB API, or there's ADO (wrapper around OLEDB).

    Info on each at msdn.....you could donwload the MDAC SDK which has info on all the above. I would also invest in a book.

    Because it is Windows specific, not C specific.

    The people who read this board tend to be more knowledable about Windows issues, and may not read the general programming boards. Similaly, people who answer questions on the C and C++ boards, may be very good with C but not use Windows.

    Connect to access with just standard C? - No...you need some sort of API like the ones I mentioned earlier.
