AFAIK, Dev2K connects to all databases (one at a time...) for which there exists an ODBC driver. It may do better than that, but I'm quite convinced it can connect to other databases. Just don't ask me how...

And frankly, I don't believe VB comes even near as a replacement to Dev2K.

What I would do in your situation, is to look for a connection wrapper ("middleware") to hide your database-connections from your application. This means using the least common denominator, but I guess you're stuck with that anyway.
