I work with a ODBC - Driver for dBase 5.0. At microsoft.com you can download the ODBC-Jet Driver.
You have to create a DSN with the driver Microsoft dBase Driver (*.dbf), with the name test_dbase and with the right path to the file. Without creating the DSN, the application won't find the dBase file!
