First: Why do you want to use dBASE as the database format?

I haven't found any good dBASE interface for Python. So if you want to
use the dBASE format you need to use ODBC and then you hopefully are
on a computer that runs unders Windows NT/98.

If you don't NEED to use dBASE then look at here you will find alot of info
about how to use Python for accessing databases....
