I'm building a app in VB5 that will manage an SQL Server 6.5 database.

The question is, should i use a connection object or a database object?

Should i use DAO and ODBC or use rDO??

Use a connection object, and RDO or ADO.  If just starting on this, I recommend you get "Hitchiker's Guide to Visual Basic & SQL server" by W. R. Vaughn from Microsoft Press.  It contains detailed examples, historical perspectives and comparisons of your available access methods.  Definitely don't use DAO if RDO or ADO is an option.
