ADO Recordset Connections


An ADO recordset pulls in data from a set of records in an ADO data provider. An external connection is an ADO recordset connection if the dbt field of the DbQuery record (section 2.4.80) is 0x7, the dbt field of the DBQueryExt record (section 2.4.81) is DBT_ADO (section 2.5.64), and the dbt field of the DConn record (section 2.4.84) is DBT_ADO (section 2.5.64).

Note: For this type of connection, the file format does not contain sufficient information for establishing the connection and fetching a recordset. Data is provided to the application through another mechanism, for example by script code using an object model.
