I start having some projects that need to connect to databases, mostly Access. I'm using Visual Studio C++ V6. The problem is that I see so many standards such as ADO, DAO, ODBC, OLE DB, and so on..

I don't know which one is the best way to go. I'm getting lost. Please anybody can tell me some links that have a better explanation on these different recordsets, with their advantages and disadvantages?

OLE DB is the base for at least ADO. ADO is just a simpler form of OLE DB. DAO I'm not sure about. I would suggest ADO or OLE DB for the future.
