Easiest connection to a database

Question:
What is the easiest connection (installation at customer site and use in program) to a database ? BDE, ODBC or Paradox direct access?

Answer:
It depends on the database. For local tables (Paradox and dBase), thestandard TTable component will work just fine. That, by the way, uses theBDE. For Access, SQL Server, etc., you must use ODBC.
