Here's the scenario: I'm using Delphi (16 bit) to connect to MS Access
Currently to connect to a database I have to use the MS ODBC manager to
create a driver and then use the BDE configuration utility to modify the

We would like to start distributing this application to our customers, but
don't want them to have to go through all of this trouble. Is there any way
to allow users to select the *.mdb file they would like to open (at
run-time). ie: is there any api to the BDE configuration utility so I can
create ODBC drivers 'on the fly'?
