Can anybody tell me how I can get hold of a coding convention document for ADO objects in the Microsoft site or MSDN Help or Visual Basic help? When a search is done in MSDN Help with the text "Visual Basic Coding Conventsions", I come up with coding coventions for DAO objects under Object Naming Conventions but not ADO.

I need somethig official that people can relate to, not your own coding conventions.

Thanks

Well, microsoft recommends Hungarian notation for variable names. Basically that is approx. 3 letter prefix to a variable name, ie:

Dim strInfo As String
Dim intCount As String
Dim varMyObject As Variable
Dim objCreate As Object

Based on that, for ADO, I use:

Dim acnConnection As ADODB.Connection
Dim arsRecordset As ADODB.Recordset

(acn = Ado ConnectioN)
(ars = Ado RecordSet)

hope this helps!
