I would use the ADOCommand.  You really do not expect a result so this would allow you to just execute a command.

You seem to have mixed up ADO with ADO.NET, can you clarify which one you are asking about?

.NET:
 For Select statements (Obviously a return expected) you would use OleDbDataReader, SqlDataReader
 For Update, Insert, Delete statements you would use OleDbCommand, SqlCommand

ADO:
For Select Statements you would use the database connection's execute method and use ADODB.recordset object to hold the returned data.
For update, insert, delete statements you would just use the db connection's execute method.

Hope this helps,
