Updating FileMaker Pro SequeLink Database With Parameters

I'm updating a FM Pro database via the ADODB namespace. I didn't make this code originally, but it uses string concatenation in a RecordSet to update the database. Personally, I'd rather use parameters, like in SQL, because it makes the code a million times easier to read. I've had a bunch of small problems concatenating so far and it's becoming frustrating.

I looked up the documentation, which you can view here.

The specific page that explains how to do it is here. But that looks completely different from what we're doing. It doesn't look like they're using the ADODB namespace like we are.

So, from the code below, how would I add parameters? Or would I need to switch to what the documentation is using?

Dim connection As New Connection()
        Dim record_set As New Recordset
        Dim test As New Command
        connection.Open(My.Settings.FMPDSN) 'FM connection string for SequeLink
        
        record_set.Open("UPDATE Traveler SET TestResult = '1', BurnInDate = '" & record.Item("Date_Test") & "'" & " WHERE Service_Order_ID = '" & record.Item("CSO_N").ToString & "'", connection)
      
        connection.Close()

Open in new window
