I want to try ODBC and ADO.

Can you give me a step by step instruction showing how to connect a mdb file? (from get a refrence, if any, to create a recordset)

Thank you in advance.

Make sure you select Microsoft ActiveX Data Objects 2.0 Library from the References item under the Projects menu.


Dim cn As ADODB.Connection
Dim rs As ADODB.Recordset

  Set cn = New ADODB.Connection
  Set rs = New ADODB.Recordset
  cn.CursorLocation = adUseClient
  rs.CursorLocation = adUseClient
   
  cn.Provider = "Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.3.51"
  cn.Open "C:\program files\devstudio\vb\nwind.mdb", "admin", ""
 
  rs.Open "Select * from customers", cn, adOpenStatic, adLockBatchOptimistic
 
  Set MSHFlexGrid1.Recordset = rs
 
  rs.Close
  Set rs = Nothing
  cn.Close
  Set cn = Nothing

Hope this helps.

You might have to install ADO on your box to see it under the References dialog box, under the Projects menu.

The name of the file is MSADO15.DLL.

On my box it's installed under c:\program files\common files\system\ado.
