Using ADO in Visual C++ 7

Hi,

I'm trying to write an application in Visual C++ 7 (Visual Studio .Net) that connects to a access database using ADO.  I'm fairly new to C++/MFC and so i'm following instructions from a book; the problem is that the book is written to use Visual C++ 6 and the Visual C++ 7 GUI has changed such that the instructions don't work.

So my question is how do I insert an ADO Data Grid Control into my application?  My book says to do this:

* Invoke the Components and Controls Galery and select registered ActiveX Controls
* Select Microsoft ADO Data Control Version 6.0 (OLEDB), Click Insert and Confirm.
* The controls are then supposed to be located on the resource editor controls toolbar under MS Ado Data Control.

I cant even find the Components and Controls Gallery to register the ADO components.

I'm sure the answer is right under my nose but any help would be much appreciated

Kind Regards and Thanks in advance

After this right-click dialog class in the Class View, select "Add - Add Variable". In the dialog check "Control Variable". Select control ID (ID of ADO control inserted to the dialog). Fill variable name and press Finish. Wizard creates wrapper class for this control and adds variable of this class to the dialog.

Right, I found this list by trying to customise the dialog editor toolbox.  Now my book, says I should insert the item entitled Microsoft ADO Data Control Version 6.0 (OLEDB), however I can't see this or any other item relating to ADO or a data grid (apart from a VideoSoft FlexArray Control, which I'm pretty sure i'm not looking for). Am I being stupid and looking for the wrong control or do I have to register the ADO Data Controls?

Thanks(again) in advance.

This control comes with some developer toolkit. Maybe you can find this information in your book. According to this article
http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/odecore/html/deconinsertingcontrols.asp
it is part of Office 2000 Developer Tools (as most if VC++ developers I don't know what is this). Try to ask in VB area where this control may be found.
