Welcome to VO2Btrieve


VO2Btrieve is a Visual Objects Class Library that gives VO developers an efficient and easy to use interface to  Btrieve tables.


Btrieve is a very popular file system used worldwide in a lot of applications, such as accounting systems. It has been in use from the early DOS ages, and is still being used by a lot of larger software development companies,

because it is a stable and very fast way to access data in a network environment.

It is also the data engine behind Pervasive SQL a relational database from Pervasive Software


VO2Btrieve has a high level DbServer compatible DataServer class (BtServer)  that allows VO developers to use the data from Btrieve tables  in combination with the VO DataWindow and Databrowser classes. It also includes a strongly typed and very fast BtTable class that talks directly to the Btrieve engine, using Btrieve API calls.
