- BDE. Report data source is a relational database, connected via BDE interface.

- Interbase. Report data source is an Interbase or Firebird database, connected via Interbase interface.

- Folders/Files. Such data source is not a database in its narrow sense. This is just folders and files from local file system. So, using this data source type, you can generate reports, which will show folder and/or file lists from the specified parent folder (e.g. database). In such reports, you can see file/folder names, creation/modification dates, etc. Even file contents can be shown (when using the corresponding report objects).
