how to get database connection using a Delphi personal version?

the bad news is that the personal versions of Delphi don't come bundled with database components, you have to use a third party solution, the good news is that there are a few free ones, here's one of them

and here's a tutotial from delphi.about about working around this limitation using text files, typed files, etc, in a few cases, these methods might be enough for your application

Creating flat (non-relational) databases with no (Delphi) database components
