    Hy, Tabari!

    You can try this connection string with an ADO Connection object:

    "Provider=MSDASQL.1;Extended Properties=;DRIVER=Microsoft dBase Driver (*.dbf);DefaultDir=c:\TEMP;DriverId=21;FIL=dBase
    III;MaxBufferSize=2048;PageTimeout=600;UID=admin;"

    Note that you must have the appropriate ODBC Driver installed on your
    machine. Change 'C:\TEMP\' by your DBF files directory. The MSDASQL is installed
    together to MDAC2.6 package.

    Good luck!

    Filipo
