Msado15.dll has to be located on the same drive as the Windows System directory, and in a path \program files\common files\system\ado. You can configure Visual C++ to use this path to search for the ADO .dll, eliminating the need to specify the explicit path within your #import statement, just as you would configure the location of header files used by
The sample shows what ADO capabilities are supported by the driver and also uses a Microsoft Access database. However, you can replace it with other data sources in the code.
With certain combinations of Delete/Add New/Next/Prev, it is possible to get an OLE error. The code is provided as a sample only and is not for production purposes.

The following code shows how to open a recordset using an ODBC Data Source Name (DSN). The sample file opens the recordset using an alternate (DSN-less) method. Note that error checking has been omitted for clarity in the code given below, but is included in the sample file.
