I'm sorry, but you have lost me when you said "the data from the frontend
should be saved in the table in sybase databae thro rational suite of
tools". I have, in the past, used an Access (matter of fact, an Access 2.0)
client to access Sybase SQL Server and Sybase SQL Anywhere. In both cases,
that was using ODBC drivers. I do not know the brand of ODBC drivers that
were used to access Sybase SQL Server, but InterSolv drivers were used to
access SQL Anywhere. Seems to me that I heard InterSolv had been bought out,
but you might do a Google search.

Then again, maybe your Rational suite has ODBC drivers? I know of people who
use Rational software for application modeling for implementation in other
languages, but have never heard of any of their tools being used with
Access.

Hi Bala,

you might want to have a look at the FreeTDS based
Single-Tier Driver available at http://www.openlinksw.co.uk.

You will be surprised by its performance which you can also benchmark
using a tool which you can download from the very same site.

Hth,
Regards,
Jan
