    Database programming

    Hi all,

    I am new to database programming and am wondering thge best route to follow. Coming from a BCB compiler and C background the use of embedded SQL statements seems the most logical. In BCB there seem to be two main ways to go: BDE or ADO. Which would be the better and why ?

    Any advice on starting out would be appreciated ,

    I am not familiar with BDE. ADO is part COM. In general if you're developing applications for the Win32/Win64 platforms, I'd recommend ADO. Better yes, check out raw ODBC.
