Ado & Sql Server 2000

I have a Sql-Server 2000 and I Access Using HTTP

I must to open an ado-recordset using a specify SQL queries directly in the URL, for example:

http://IISServer/nwind?sql=SELECT+*+FROM+Customers+FOR+XML+AUTO&root=root

the result is an XML, and i must use this recordset to populate a dbgrid in a visual basic application

How to do?

the ado recordset has the Open method, which accepts if you give the filename of an XML file...
Thus you might save the result of the http:... to a local file.xml, and open it with your ADORecordset, and bind this one to your dbgrid...

I suggest you examine the ADO.Stream object, which can store recordsets as XML. The MSDN contains some examples of using Streams in combination with SQL-Server 2000, for example this article:

HOWTO: Retrieve XML Data by Using a SQL XML Query in a Visual Basic Client
http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q271/6/20.ASP

Hope this helps a bit,
