Accessing a DB from thread

Hi, I used to have the db connection in my dialog:
MyDlg::AccessDB()
{
..
}

But I have  a lot of data to transfer, so I have put it in a thread, like this, creating the thread from the dialog:
AfxBeginThread(WorkerThreadProc,this,THREAD_PRIORITY_NORMAL,0,0,NULL);

Then the implementation of the function looks like this:

UINT WorkerThreadProc( LPVOID Param )
{
_ConnectionPtr m_DBConn;
m_DBConn.CreateInstance( __uuidof( Connection ) );
}

** I could create the instance to the _ConnectionPtr, when I did it in the dialog class, but not hire in the worker thread function. Anyone have any good idea why ?

You need to call CoInitialize or CoInitializeEx in the beginning of worker thread, and CoUninitialize/CoUninitializeEx in the end.
