    Connect to SQL Server or Oracle vs Access


    Hi all

    I was wondering how I can connect a VB program to either SQL Server or to
    an Oracle database. I've written several programs that work with and even
    create an Access database, and have always used Microsoft's ADO to do so.
    I've not seen anything that shows how I can connect to SQL Server or Oracle.
    Can I still use ADO?

    Thanks

    James

    James,
    You can start by referring to this article in the MS Knowledge Base:
    Q176936 - INFO: Visual Basic Accessing an Oracle Database Using ADO
    There are numerous other links that should provide a good starting place.

    yes. programming oracle with visual basic comes with an extension look for
    the documentation of oracle objects. the same thing as with sql server.

    Can I still use ADO?

    See the following:

    In addition, Oracle also requires that client software be installed and configured.
