    Sage - its true identity?

    Am I correct to say "Sage is just a GUI for MS Access"?

    I dont belive it is.
    it uses a different ODBC driver - but can link to access db's as far as I know.

    you would be very correct indeed

    I've done a bit of work in the past to get around a certain mechanism of Sage before now (as asked by the director of the company )

    IIRC its a Delphi front end for an encrypted Access97 DB. Simple As.

    Thanks. Does this mean you need to have MS Access installed in order to use Sage?

    FunkyT - you dont need access installed to use sage.

    the access database drivers (Jet) are standalone - i've written access databses in the past using ASP, and Jet 4.0
