RDO Connection problem

Hi All,

I am very new to VB and now I have started coding in VB. I have to write an application using SQL server as a backend and RDO connection. I am having difficulty in writing the code for RDO. Can anyone help me and can give me the code for establishing the connection and executing the query with RDO thru VB. I need it urgently.

Hi kirtirani,

This class demo maybe can help you:

Demonstrates the creation of Master/Detail form using an RDO connection, also helps understand the object oriented programming concepts in VB.

http://www.vbcode.com/code/MDForm.zip

Anyway, you can use the RDO Control in component, follow the wizard provided, it is much easier stuff.

Basically, RDO is perform as well as the ADO.

'Hope will help.

Here is the code I use. It is in ADO. This will retrive the information from the table. You can use a DSNless connection or one that uses a DSN.

Sub GetSql()
Dim RSSQL As ADODB.Recordset

'This is the dsnless connection
ConnectStrSQL = "Provider=SQLOLEDB.1; Network Library=dbmssocn;Password=Password;User ID=UserName;Initial Catalog=DatabaseName;Data Source=ServerName;"

'This is the DSN connection string. this is the easiest method
ConnectStrSQL = "DSN=Pubs;UID=sa;PWD=pwd;"

'Open Sql Database for updating
Set RSSQL = New ADODB.Recordset
RSSQL.ActiveConnection = ConnectStrSQL
RSSQL.CursorType = adOpenKeyset
RSSQL.LockType = adLockOptimistic
RSSQL.Open "Select * from table"

Hope this helps. Read up on ADO at msdn.microsoft.com/vbasic/technical/articles/ado20/default.asp

if you have the choice definately use ado instead of rdo.  MS as quit releasing new rdo stuff and don't really support it anymore.

also the above way shown is slow as you have to reconnect to the db every time you want the recordset you should use a connection object if you have to get a bunch of recordsets

ex

dim cn as adodb.connection
dim rs1 as adodb.recordset
dim rs2 as adodb.recordset

set cn = new adodb.connection
set rs1 = new adodb.connection
set rs2 = new adodb.connection

cn.connectionstring = "DSN=mydsn" 'or use a dsn less one
cn.open

dim sql as string
dim sql2 as string
sql = "sql query"
sql2 = "sql2 query"

rs1.open sql, cn, adopenstatic, adlockreadonly
rs2.open sql2, cn, adopenstatic, adlockreadonly

do stuff with rs's

rs1.close
rs2.close
cn.close

set rs1 = nohting
set rs2 = nothing
set cn = nothing
