What method other than ODBC can I use to open and connect to a SQL Server Database in my VB 4.0 app?  If other method(s) are available, please reply with code.

Thank you for your time and attention to this matter.

As far as I know, ODBC is the only way.

The other way might be using DB Library provided by SQL Server. As I remember, there is something call VBSQL may go thru this way. I didn't have the reference on hand, can't confirm about it.

You can use OLEDB and ActiveX Data Objects.  I would reccommend using these as they are easy to use and provide you with move functionality then RDO (ver. 2.0) of ADO does anyways.

Jagar,

Before I accept your answer, are their ActiveX Data Objects and/or OLEDB in VB 4.0?
