    Default Alpha Five Data Provider & Stored Procedures query

    Is there a Data Provider for Alpha Five? I need to be able to communicate to the Alpha 'server' as well as its Table Sets that containing Linked Tables, and be able to use the triggers / XBasic events, from an external application

    Does Alpha Five also provide Stored Procedures?
    As I also need to be able to be able to call these StoredProc's [if the are provided/supported] from an external application.

    alpha five's tables are standard .dbf files. you can use MDAC (with the foxpro 2.6 driver) to read the files from an external program.

    however, a5 is not a server - an external program cannot invoke xbasic events. furthermore, if you update an a5 table using MDAC, the a5 record events will not execute.
