You have many ways to do this....

For example, in ADO

Dim cn as new ADODB.Connection
Dim rs as new ADODB.Recordset

'First you need to create yourDSN (Control Panel -> ODBC Data Sources)
cn.open "DSN=yourDSN"
rs.open "myTableName",cn

rs.fields(1)
rs(1)
rs.fields("myField")
rs("myfield")
rs!myfield

-all this gives your the refference to the 2nd field in your table named myfield
