What Larry said, except ... you could probably write a DLL in .NET that 
used the driver for mySQL (or SQL server, or the NpGSQL .net 
driver for PostgreSQL) and took formatted SQL statements and did the 
database query and passed back the data in the form of a CSV file. It 
would be fairly straight-forward to do. In fact, you could write a 
control that was fairly generic and have it handle a choice of databases 
(keeping in mind that you'd have to cater for various dialects). The 
control could be written so that it was compatible with Paradox. 
Basically it would be a .NET control for Paradox sans BDE.
