    Well what i really want is this:

    a) I have SQL on a LAPTOP and i what to use it as ACCESS, this means: Open Database, Drop them, etc.

    b) After that connect the APP to the DBS.

    c) But how if i do not have a server? How can i use it just a ACCESS?

    You need to have SQL server running on your laptop, or a server on a network your laptop is connected to to use SQL. As far as I'm aware, there is no way around this. If you want something akin to MSAccess's MDB, try DBase's DBF. Otherwise you need a SQL server running on your laptop or on a network your laptop is hooked up to. Keep in mind that SQL server (MSSQL7 anyway) is quite the resource pig and should be on a machine by itself. You might want to look into MySQL, but I believe the requirements are the same (in terms of needing a server machine to run it off of).
