So I'll own up, I've been using the BDE (yes still) to run paradox tables, I've been doing it because I pretty much know it inside out and have got a copy of Sundial Services Chimneysweep and can rattle out a full blown web based enterprise in a short amount of time.,

But it's time to move on. I've got ADOExpress installed into my BCB5Pro but don't somehow feel thats the right direction either.

I use BCB5Pro to write ISAPI's and want to host these on Windows2003 servers, whatsa the best technology / methodology / database engine to do this with ?

What I dont want is to learn the commands for a new engine only for it to be immediately supreceeded by the new personality. I dont know too much about Windows2003.

I already know SQL from other things I do so I guess Microsofts SQL is probably a good direction.

Thanks for any ideas

This looks like it might be in the right direction :

anyone ever used it before ?

I've never used Core Lab's products before so I can't comment on them. I've have good luck with TurboPower's Flash Filer ( and the Advantage DB (

SDAC seems cool at the moment, though getting MSDE installed was 'in at the deepend' - lol keeraazy microsoft and their bonkers command line installation configurations.

Anyway, Am cracking on lovely with MSDE/SDAC now
