Constructs a CDatabase object.

CDatabase( );

After constructing the object, you must call its OpenEx or Open member function to establish a connection to a specified data source.

You may find it convenient to embed the CDatabase object in your document class.

// This example illustrates using CDatabase 
// in a CDocument-derived class.

class CMyDocument : public CDocument
   // Declare a CDatabase embedded in the document
   CDatabase m_dbCust;
   // ...

// ...

// Initialize when needed
CDatabase* CMyDocument::GetDatabase( )
   // Connect the object to a data source
   if( !m_dbCust.IsOpen( ) && 
       !m_dbCust.OpenEx( NULL ) )
      return NULL;

   return &m_dbCust;
