ADO connection

This is the first time I am using ADO. Could someone give some sample code to connect to a SQL database? I have a linked table to the sql db and a query to lookup some information from that table. I have done this using DAO (see below), but the sql database is asking for username and password that I do not want the users to see.
Thanks in advance,
Jim


Dim medrec As String
Dim db As DAO.Database
Dim rst As DAO.Recordset

Set db = CurrentDb()
Set rst = db.OpenRecordset("qry lookup", dbOpenSnapshot, dbReadOnly)

Here is sample code to connect using ADO to any ODBC datasource.

Dim myCn As New ADODB.Connection
Dim myRs As New ADODB.Recordset
   
myCn.ConnectionString = "DSN=myDataSource"
myCn.Open
myRs.Open "SELECT * FROM myTable", myCn, adOpenDynamic

Good Luck!

Kman,
does the myrs recordset have the same properties as the DAO recordset? By that I mean using DAO I can loop through the rescordset, do compairisons to a particular field ie myrs.Fields("Last Name").value="Jones".
Thanks

Very similar to DAO and many of the same properties are available, and some new ones added.
