These Classes will allow you to write PDB databases without using Appforge components.  These classes are VB6 and are designed to work with desktop applications.

Here is an example:

Dim oPDB As New PDBDatabase
Dim oByteStream As New PDBByteStream
Dim oAppForgeHeader As New PDBAppforgeDefinition
Dim oAppForgeData As New PDBAppforgeRecord

' Creates a new database
If oPDB.CreateDatabase() Then
    ' Successful
    oPDB.PDBDatabaseName = "test"
    oPDB.CreatorId = "TEST"
    
    ' Creates the Appforge header
    oAppForgeHeader.AddFieldName "Test", eStringField
     
    ' Writes a Record
    Set oAppForgeData.AppforgeDefinition = oAppForgeHeader
    oAppForgeData.StringValue(1) = "test"
        
    ' writes the record
    Set oByteStream = oAppForgeData.ByteStream
    oPDB.Update -1, 0, 0, 0, oByteStream.ByteArray
        
    ' Saves the data
    oPDB.WriteAppInfoBlock oAppForgeHeader.AppInfoBlock
    oPDB.CloseDatabase
Else
    ' failed
    MsgBox "Failed to create"
End If

' Changes information in a database
oPDB.PDBDatabaseName = "AFSampleTable"
If oPDB.OpenDatabase Then
    ' Gets the Appforge file infor
    Set oAppForgeHeader = New PDBAppforgeDefinition
    If oAppForgeHeader.IsAppforgeData(oPDB.ReadAppInfoBlock) Then
        ' This is an appforge database.  Setup the Appforge header
        ' information
        Set oAppForgeData.AppforgeDefinition = oAppForgeHeader
        
        ' Updates the appforge data
        Set oByteStream = New PDBByteStream
        oByteStream.ByteArray = oPDB.ReadNextByIndex(1, 0, 0, 0)
        Set oAppForgeData.ByteStream = oByteStream

        Debug.Print oAppForgeData.BooleanValue(1) & " = True"
        Debug.Print oAppForgeData.ByteValue(2) & " = 10"
        Debug.Print oAppForgeData.CurrencyValue(3) & " = 55"
        Debug.Print oAppForgeData.DateValue(4) & " = 1/31/2002"
        Debug.Print oAppForgeData.SingleValue(5) & " = 1.3"
        Debug.Print oAppForgeData.DoubleValue(6) & " = .5544332211"
        Debug.Print oAppForgeData.IntegerValue(7) & " = 340"
        Debug.Print oAppForgeData.LongValue(8) & " = 45300"
        Debug.Print oAppForgeData.StringValue(9) & " = Hello"

        oAppForgeData.StringValue(9) = "test"

        ' writes the record
        Set oByteStream = oAppForgeData.ByteStream
        oPDB.Update 1, 0, 0, 0, oByteStream.ByteArray
   Else
        ' Not Appforge
        MsgBox "Not an Appforge Database"
   End If

   ' Save changes
   oPDB.WriteAppInfoBlock oAppForgeHeader.AppInfoBlock
   oPDB.CloseDatabase
Else
   MsgBox "Failed to open " & oPDB.PDBDatabaseName
End If
