ODBC, Crystal Reports via OLE DB, Cognos PowerPlay 7.0 by native
connection (we can hope)].

I don't want to speak for everybody but here is my wish in a nutshell.

There ought to exists a mechanism such that only the application I have

written should have any access to the data and schema.

That's it. The file ought to be utterly useless to anything and anybody
other then my application. My application will interact with the data
show the results to my customer if, where, when and how I want.
