How to close ADO Data Control connection?

Within an Excel VBA application, I'm using the ADO Data Control to populate a DataGrid with data from an Access table.

I set the connection and recordsource properties on opening the file, then set them to empty strings on closing. However once my app. is closed there still exists an Access record-locking icon for the database in Explorer.

I don't seem to be able to close the database; the ADO Data Control doesn't have a connection.close method. How do I do it?  It's even causing a fatal error on Windows shutdown.

Do not use the ADODC to start with. Ther eis no reason for you to do so.  Instead use ADO directyl

Dim conn As ADODB.Connection
Dim rs As ADODB.Recordset

and so on. Once you create the recordset you bind it to the DataGrid.  At the end:

rs.Close
Set rs = Nothing

conn.Close
Set conn = Nothing

Once you create a recordset:

Set DataGrid1.DataSource = rst
