Problems on DB connection

Hi there,

This is my first time on expertsexchange, so please bear over with me.

I'm trying to write an application for datamining some data from 3 db's into one central. I've just started with the app, but I've troubles already.

When trying to instantiate the recordset, I get a com_error. The line of code is taken from MSDN, and I just can't figure it out, why it doesn't work.

_RecordsetPtr spRS(__uuidof(Recordset));

So I've narrowed it down to wrong installation of VC++ 6.0 which is the environment I'm using, or that I've missed some #imports perhaps. The funny part is that the debugger finds the right files, or at least I think it does.

Can anyone give me some clue of what I'm doing wrong.

I would really like to get a grip around C++, but I'm constantly having these n00b questions.

Thanks in advance
