This sample is called FileDB. demonstrates how an application that used CEDB can been ported to use EDB. Using #ifdef EDB both the CEDB and EDB versions are shown in the sample. If you would like to build for CEDB just remove the #define EDB at the top of the FileDB.cpp file.

This sample is very simple; it creates a database with 3 rows and populates it with the names, size and time of the files in a directory. The database is then closed and opened sorted by date, time and size respectively. The results are shown in Visual Studio debug output window.
