Product Description

Amazon Review

For anyone who works with databases on the Microsoft platform, ADO 2.1 Programmer's Reference provides a thorough guide to the latest Microsoft APIs in a small format handbook that fits into any size briefcase. This book will be appreciated for its efficient packaging of late-breaking technical information, as well as many small samples that show how to use these APIs effectively.

The best thing about this guide is its concise format explaining all major APIs used for database programming on the Microsoft platform. There's excellent coverage of Active Data Object (ADO) basics (with whole chapters that look at its Connection, Command, and Recordset objects). The book also pays attention to programming on the client with RDS programming for Internet Explorer. Standout sections include an excellent explanation of data shaping principles, along with a worthwhile programming how-to. Samples are presented using Visual Basic, with tips on using these objects in C++, Visual J++ and today's scripting languages.

Tutorial sections show off how to work with these APIs and reference sections list every method and constant for quick lookup. With its handy size and thorough scope, ADO 2.1 Programmer's Reference is suitable for VB, Web scripting, Java and C++ programmers--in other words, any developer who works with databases using Microsoft tools. --Richard Dragan, Amazon.com

Topics covered: ADO object model and APIs, OLE DB, ADOX (for programming with tables, fields, indexes, etc.), RDS, data warehousing and ADO Multidimensional (ADOMD), Jet and Replication Options (JRO), data shaping and Internet publishing, performance, tutorial and API reference.

From the Publisher

This book is aimed at existing database application programmers moving to ADO as well as developers using ADO who want a convenient and comprehensive quick reference and need information about the 2.1 upgrade.

Format: Paperback
I have been developing VB based applications for 5 years and have used many methods of data access (DAO, RDO etc.). This book covers the latest method "ADO" to the full, providing an easy introduction for the beginner and delving into the complexities further into the book for that almost perfect learning curve. Certainly the best book on the subject I have read.

Don't expect a long winding story of how ADO came about or it's probable uses, this book get's straight to the point from chapter one. It's ideal if you are a VB or Access developer and want to know why you should use ADO. This book also tells you what ADO can't do. The examples are plentiful and you will have a thorough understanding once you've read this book.

Format: Paperback
Its a very easy to follow book with ADO source for most visual studio products. I used it for enterprise VB6 development and found everything I needed to know. It has a very good reference in the back for ADO constant names and values, came in really handly when coding an ADO error handling class.

I could research issues in minutes, whereas with other sources I'd be lucky to find an answer in a few hours.
