I know that ADO could be used to read text files (comma delimited or tabbed)

My question is can ADO be used to read Random Files (saved in text form) containing User Defined Types

Usually it is read as follows :

   Dim rec as RandomRecord

   Open "C:\RandomFile.txt For Random As #1 Len = Len(Rec)
   
   nRecords = LOF(1) / Len(Rec)
   
   For i = 1 To nRecords
   
      Get #1, i, Rec

   Next i

Thank you
