Have a look at this reference from Microsoft for using ADO with vbscript.

for some example of the above technology usage see

Also see this tutorial on connection strings -> http://www.tnsites.com/support/s_databaseconn.asp

Example taken from above link VBscript in an ASP page:

<%
Set Cnn = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
Cnn.open "PROVIDER=MICROSOFT.JET.OLEDB.4.0;DATA SOURCE=D:\html\users\yourdomaincom\database\mydatabase.mdb"
%>
