In order to use MS Access or any other SQL database you need to learn the SQL language -- or at least have a basic understanding of it. There are several free c++ ODBC classes and here that will simplify connecting to the database, quering and receiving the resultsets. You can also do database inserts and updates.

Most, if not all, the c++ classes contain example programs.


We recently published a technical article with code samples on MSDN which shows how you can use Visual Studio C/C++ to work with Access 2007 databases, talks about new ACE engine and file formats that Access supports and much more.
