Visual Basic Reference


A technology that allows you to access ODBC data sources through RDO by using DAO features that bypass the Microsoft Jet database engine.

When an ODBC data source is referenced in this manner, it is called an "ODBCDirect" data source. This is to distinguish it from an ODBC data source that is connected indirectly through the Jet Database Engine, which is called a "Jet-connected ODBC data source." The technology used in accessing the data source determines which DAO objects, methods, and properties can be used.
