Today I'm not which is faster but there is a thing for sure is that OLE DB is being improved about every month or 2.

So if not higher performance today, tomorrow will surely be!
I prefer ODBC because it works better for what i do but OLE is also a great way!!!  I would go with OLE because it is much more general.

Around 1993 when I was using VB3, Oracle stated that Oracle Objects for OLE was about 400% faster than ODBC. These days, they just say it is "high performance". There are fewer layers to go through than ODBC -- search for OLE on Oracle's web site for a diagram.
