Connecting to a database....(urgent)

I want to connect to a database created in MS-Access or MS-SQL Server.I do not want to use MFC classes and later on I want to convert the application into a component(a dll).Hence the same code for coonecting to the database should apply.

How do I do this?

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.
