Cannot see fields in MS SQL tables in Paradox

Cannot see fields in MS SQL tables in Paradox in MS SQL topic (part of our DBA, Databases, & Data group).

I am attempting to convert a Paradox database into MS SQL back end using Paradox 10 as a front end. I can now connect to MS SQL 2008 Server Express and see tables in the Paradox data model but when I double click them I just get the SQL hourglass and that is it - none of the fields appear for selection (my dummy tables contain char(10) fields). 

Has anyone else seen this?

I have been programming (and earning a living) in Paradox since version 1 in 1987. It's been pretty good to me so far but things have really slowed down in the last few years!!

I replied to your other post so I am curious. How are you connecting to the SQL server? Did you use the BDE native driver? Does that work? Did you use ODBC?

1. BDE SQL Links Not Maintained

I have an application in Delphi 1-7, using BDE. Is there a way that I can upgrade the BDE so the can work with MSSQL 2005 or 2008. They work fine if MSSQL2000 is is used. Am I on a dead end or there is still hope?
