It's cross-platform and very lightweight,  whereas the server component of SQLRelay only works on the Unix variants. isectZope contains a generic Zope DA and Visual Basic bindings and comes with Windows binaries. To make it work with MS-Access all you will need to do is create a small VB EXE that connects to Access using DAO or ADO and ships the result set back to Zope as a Python eval() capable string.

You should really try to find a different way of passing the data
back to Zope: eval() is a huge security risk which could be exploited
