Yes and no. If you can get hold of BDE 5.2 and the InterBase SQLLinks
driver (shipped with Delphi 6 Enterprise Edition, last ever BDE) there is a
partly-finished implementation of dialect 3 numerics and date types. In
your shoes, I would test it to death, if just to prove to myself that the
BDE truly is a lost cause.
