A long time ago, somebody wrote:

"Also remember that by default the first row is considered to be
the column names, so when you open the worksheet the record pointer will
actually be positioned at the physical second row (if there is any data)."

Is there any way to position the record pointer to the first record?

I am using vb6 with ADO and trying to access the first row of
a column without header (excel file). I managed to retrieve all the data,
but the content of the first row is always put in the recordset's "name"
field, which I don't want because it is not a header.

Thanks for your help.
