Getting More Help with ADO


Okay, so maybe you need more help on with ADO and don't know where to go. Well, I could send you to MSDN online or to the MSDN CDs that keep appearing on your doorstep every three months or so. However, while the information is likely there somewhere, finding it is a royal PIA (that's another technical term).

Both my Hitchhiker's Guide to Visual Basic and SQL Server (6th edition, Microsoft Press, ISBN: 1-57231-848-1) and the ADO 2.0 Programmer's Reference (Wrox Press, ISBN: 0-861001-83-5) are good basic references to ADO. However, the latter draws a number of conclusions about cursors that seem bizarre, at best. Microsoft Press also has a good, new ADO 2.5-oriented text by David Sceppa called Programming ADO (ISBN: 0-7356-0764-8) that I reviewed (and wrote the forewordfor). Richard Waymire and Rick Sawtell's book Teach Yourself Microsoft SQL Server 7.0 in 21 Days (Sams, ISBN: 0-672-31290-5) seems to be a solid reference for SQL Server 7.0. Active Server Pages (Wrox Press, ISBN:1-861000-72-3) helped quite a bit with the Web side of development.

You can also get help online—and even for free. Several thousand folks and I hang out on a list server: <>. Lots of questions are asked and answered there.
