I am indeed using Firebird 1.5, however, also using the BDE, as this
application doesn't seem to work without the drivers for BDE. I don't
know if I have scope on this project to change the software so it
doesn't use the BDE, however, it seems to work. Do you mind explaining
the use/ interaction of these drivers ? Why would I need to have BDE
installed for this application to work (due to the errors from my
previous post, something like 'Cannot initalise BDE $2108' )

The QuickReport software has been purchased again as the previous
developers used it for creating reports, and I had no choice but to
use it again. (budget/time constraint).


PS : This is my first Delphi/Firebird project upgrading an
application...without a team environment to ask questions of...I
appreicate your advice.
