DAO Recordset Connections


A DAO recordset pulls in data from a set of records in a DAO data provider. An external connection is a DAO recordset connection if the dbt field of the DbQuery record (section 2.4.80) is 0x2, the dbt field of the DBQueryExt record (section 2.4.81) is DBT_DAO (section 2.5.64), and the dbt field of the DConn record (section 2.4.84) is DBT_DAO (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.
