Hello,

My friend is trying to read data from a MySQL table using VBScript and wondering if instead of typing each field of the table in his code one by one could use an object (like dealing with collection) and read all the field of a table and read them.

Is this possible in VBScript?

Thanks,
Ak

I have not done this, but I believe you can connect to MySQL using ADODB (see for example this).  Then once you read your data into a normal Recordset, you have the Fields collection and can do all the usual Recordset stuff.
