Appendix C: Programming with ADO in Development Environments

ADO is a COM automation interface component that can be used with many programming languages, including Microsoft Visual Basic, VBScript, JScript and Visual C++. A version of ADO is installed with each of these tools and other applications, such as Microsoft Office and Microsoft SQL Server.

The library for ADO is msado15.dll and the program ID (ProgID) prefix is "ADODB." For example, to explicitly refer to an ADO Recordset, use ADODB.Recordset.
