MFC provides two ways to work with databases. See the overview for this topic for information on choosing the right one for your needs. Also see the overview if you prefer to use either the DAO Software Development Kit (SDK) or the ODBC SDK without using MFC.
The tasks below are based on MFC.
What do you want to do?
- Write a program that uses DAO
- Write a program that uses ODBC
- Write a program that uses data-bound controls
Tip Visual C++ includes the Microsoft Knowledge Base, which you can use to find additional articles on database topics written by product support engineers.
