I previously had an MDB front end connected to an MDB back end.  Using VBA from the front end to open a recordset of a particular table and add records to that table was basically done as follows:

Dim con As ADODB.Connection
Dim rsX As New ADODB.Recordset

Set con = CurrentProject.Connection

rsX.Open "tblX", con, , adLockPessimistic

rsX.AddNew
    rsX!field1 = "xxx"
    rsX!field2 = "yyy"
    rsX!field3 = "zzz"
rsX.Update

Simple.  Worked great.  No problem...  BUT, now the MDB back-end data has been converted to Oracle and I need to change the front-end VBA to accomplish the same logic as above.  I've gotten this far:

Dim con As New ADODB.Connection
con.Open "DRIVER={ORACLE ODBC DRIVER};..." (whole connection string not shown...)

The connection opens fine, but that's where I'm stuck.  How do I open a recordset of the table to which I want to add records?  And then how do I add the records?  Am I going to have to use "INSERT..." SQL to get this done?  I've seen some references to being able to establish a recordset and then manipulate it just as I did above with Access tables, but I haven't gotten it to work...

Thanks for any tips!
