The apps I write are cross platform, thus different DBs come into 
play. Access or SQL 7 on PC, and MySQL on Linux. Is there a way of 
automatically determining what database I'm using without having to 
resort to creating a global variable and changing it every time I 
move my app? It's a little thing that would make the transitions 

Some are born great. Some achieve greatness.
Both are excellent contacts to keep in your Rolodex.
