TQuery,TTable... are BDE Datasets.
So, if you want to avoid them I'd like to suggest you to use ADO Datasets.
With ADO Datasets you can directly access to database without using ODBC or BDE.
In case of MDB file (ACCESS file) Delphi was provided Microsoft Jet 4.0 OLE DB Provider.
Because of ADO is Microsoft technology, you may be install DCOM and MDAC before you use.

you may need to install ADO, but is very fast than work with BDE (that is slow)...
