Connecting to a database using OLE DB

This section describes how to connect to a SQL Anywhere database using OLE DB in the following environments:

  • Microsoft ActiveX Data Objects (ADO) provides a programming interface for OLE DB data sources. You can access SQL Anywhere from programming tools such as Microsoft Visual Basic.

  • Sybase PowerBuilder can access OLE DB data sources, and you can use SQL Anywhere as a PowerBuilder OLE DB database profile.

OLE DB uses the Component Object Model (COM) to make data from a variety of sources available to applications. Relational databases are among the classes of data sources that you can access through OLE DB.
