I am looking to use MS ADO in VB and given the choice of connecting to CA Express ODBC drivers or ADO drivers, I would prefer using the ADO drivers. However it looks like there are a couple of limitations: 1) It appears we cannot pass the userid/password in on connect, but the client access prompt must be used instead (unlike when using the ODBC drivers). Is there a way to pass these instead? 2) Can't find a way to set the default library. If we use ODBC we can set up DSNs and specify the default library.... isn't there a similar mechanism with Client Access's ADO drivers? DefaultDatabase property on the Connection object seems to not be supported by the drivers. 3) I assume I am going to miss out on some potential performance benefits if we use MS ADO objects to connect via CA ODBC DSNs instead of CA ADO -- what kinds of performance differences are there between these two methods?
