Front Cover
Wiley, Feb 20, 2006 - Computers - 1042 pages
ADO, or ActiveX Data Objects, is Microsoft's key technology for data access in client/server and Web applications. This book covers both ADO and ADO.NET in one volume, allowing a programmer to select the appropriate technology for their database application. The material is good for not only VB.NET and C# programmers but also those using VBA, Access, and older versions of the Microsoft programming tools. It includes numerous examples showing various combinations of servers and clients, including SQL Server, Jet, and Oracle on the server side, and VB, Access, ASP.NET, and VB.NET on the client side. The book also covers more advanced topics, such as disconnected recordsets, XML integration, schema modification, and multidimensional aggregation. The companion CD-ROM includes all the sample code and applications from the book, plus a collection of third-party ADO utilities.

Note: CD-ROM/DVD and other supplementary materials are not included as part of eBook file.
