This is a quicky and I think I know the answer but it's a question that's popped into my head and can not categorically find the answer in the User Guide.

Is the only way to access a (Windows) Microsoft Access database by way of the ODBCDatabase class? If not, what alternatives are available?

You can use ADO if you are doing this on Windows. There are ADO examples around though I find ADO in Real Studio to be tedious.

ODBC is the "native" way to do it.

Thanks Bob. Yes, I'm on Windows and my particular project is for Windows but don't want to be locked into Windows only processes.

Some people use JDBC driver to connect with our Java plugin to Access.
