    What sort of database did you have in mind? Try searching the forums for "btriev"

      Thanks alot, but I can't execute any search,
      because I get "connection timeout" on the
      "Search" page. from what I can see, it's about
      a Novel DataBase. I'll keep looking...

      Alex.

        In general how one uses a Database Management System is via an Application Programming Interface (API) provided by the DBMS vendor.

        What you need to do is look at the various brand-name DBMS's and see what kind of API that specific brand name DBMS provides for your environment.

        Some MS-DOS APIs will use a OBJ file linked to your program, some may use a TSR program which must be loaded (Btrieve/MS-DOS uses a TSR).

        APIs for Windows are generally either a proprietary DLL (e.g., Oracle) or by means of the 'generic' ODBC interface.
