Hi Folks

Is it possible to access a Paradox table through Query Analyzer, can OpenRowSource be used this way?

Any thoughts ?

Thanks

Dave

Check out this link: http://www.connectionstrings.com/

It has a Paradox section and 'stuff' that relates to Access and .NET. So I'd guess you could convert that information into an Openquery. Unfortunately I do not have Paradox to test it with.

Figured it out


SELECT *
FROM OPENROWSET('Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0',
'paradox 5.x;database=C:\Trax\COM\private\scratch\', carriers)


Where the paradox 9 file is at this path C:\Trax\COM\private\scratch\carriers.db

NOTE: I always heard it was not safe to write using MS driver. No idea if its true.
Only Tested under SQL 2000.

This below also worked

SELECT *
FROM OPENROWSET('Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0',
'paradox 7.x;database=C:\Trax\COM\private\scratch\', carriers)
