I'm a novice VB6 programmer developing a front end to an Oracle database. I remember in an introductory course an instructor saying "here is the ADO data control and this is what it can do...but nobody uses it because it is so slow." I'm trying to use it and finding that to be the case.
Can anyone point me in the direction I need to go to learn how to access the Oracle database and create recordsets, etc. without using the data control? My application has to be faster.
