ADO programming with SQL Anywhere

ADO (ActiveX Data Objects) is a data access object model exposed through an Automation interface, which allows client applications to discover the methods and properties of objects at runtime without any prior knowledge of the object. Automation allows scripting languages like Visual Basic to use a standard data access object model. ADO uses OLE DB to provide data access.

Using the SQL Anywhere OLE DB provider, you get full access to SQL Anywhere features from an ADO programming environment.

This section describes how to perform basic tasks while using ADO from Visual Basic. It is not a complete guide to programming using ADO.
