What Larry said, except ... you could probably write a DLL in .NET that
used the ADO.net 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.
