Hi,

If you have experience writing database applications in Delphi using BDE then it's almost the same using ADO with few slight differences:

- names of the components (TADOConnection instead of TDatabase, TADOQuery instead of TQuery, etc.);
- ConnectionString property instead of AliasName/DatabaseName in TADOConnection;
- Connection property instead of DatabaseName;
- Parameters for SQL statements in ADO components have different syntax;
- different syntax of using transactions;
- extended way of controling connection parameters in ADO;
- etc.

I use Delphi help mainly. Search there for 'ADO-based applications'.

Regards, Geo
