Hi All, context: I am using Access 97 tablkes with VB. I can see records in the MDB, using Adodc and datagrid. Once installed, packages are listed in the Registry under HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Borland\Delphi\ Components meant to be used in the IDE can only be installed as a package, ie.a DPK master file along with one or more PAS files to be compiled into DCUs and aggregated in a single BPL file that will be registered into the IDE.The Visual Component Library (VCL) provides a number of components that greatly simplify database development.These include the components on the Data Access page of the component palette, as well as those on the Data Controls page.As of April 2005, Delphi is available as Delphi 2005, a.k.a. Net applications, but you might be able to still get your hands on Delphi 7 (to write Win32, and Linux applications by using Kylix and the Qt widgets-based CLX component library instead of the Windows-only VCL widgets), or Delphi 8 (to get you started writing . If you just want to get started and learn Delphi, the Personal edition of Delphi 7 is all you need is love. If you are using the Personal or Standard edition, looks like the only way is to use the syntax, with no menu or keyboard shortcut available.Net applications; D7 has a command-line version of the Delphi CLI compiler, but it was really meant as a learning tool.) Note that D8 comes with Delphi 7.1. Some are open-source, some are just freeware, and yet others are commercial: Note: In the Delphi literature, depending on the context, "package" refers to either a DPK master file and PAS/DCU source files, or the resulting, compiled BPL file which contains all the DCU files.
