  • Use ODBC. It has all the databases DBMS you could image, and with your software like mySQL you can download the odbc with it.

    It has:
    Microsoft Text; <----
    " visual foxpro;
    access 97 / 2000;
    excel
    dbase iii+
    sybase
    sql
    and others...

    the connection string is only dsn=yourodbc that's all (for oledb aka. ado), but you have to make a connection on the control panel in odbc administratro, make it on user or machine, not in file.
