All programmers working in database technology using Microsoft development tools will find this book useful. As a reference, it is suitable for beginners and experienced programmers alike. This is a great addition and complement to any other ADO manual, and its one you'll want to keep on the desk at all times.

This informative guide provides a complete reference to the ADO API, covering all versions up to 2.8. Code samples are concise, and emphasis is placed on ADO techniques rather than the specific environments in which it may be used. Some of the book's highlights include:

  • Coverage of related technologies, such as ADOX and ADOMD
  • Online samples in multiple languages
  • Examination of ADO performance aspects

This is the most definitive book on the subject to date, and has been the leading reference on ADO since its first release.

About the Author

Dave Sussman is a hacker in the traditional sense of the word. That's someone who likes playing with code and figuring out how things work, which is why he spends much of his life working with beta software. Luckily, this coincides with writing about new technologies, giving him an outlet for his poor English and grammar. He lives in a small village in the Oxfordshire countryside in the U.K. Like many programmers everywhere, he has an expensive hi-fi, a big TV, and no life.
