Hello,
I getting up to speed with access 2010.  What is the difference between CurrentProject.AccessConnection and CurrentProject.Connection.  As I understand it, the former returns a reference to the currently active ADO Connection object while the latter returns the currently active ADO Connection object.  When is one used instead of the other?

I think that if you assign an ado recordset to a form, then one obtained via Connection is not updateable, whereas one obtained via AccessConnection is updateable.  So not a frequently used feature.

(and of course next sql server version is all ODBC; no OLEDB)

The CurrentProject.AccessConnection property was introduced in Microsoft Access 2002. Like the CurrentProject.Connection property, it allows developers to share an ADO connection with Microsoft Access. The difference between these properties depends on whether you are using an Access project (that is, a SQL Server database, ADP) or a Jet database (MDB) file in Microsoft Access.
