17. ADO and OLE DB > 17.2. Installing ADO

Installing ADO

I should mention a word about installing ADO. ADO is installed along with Office 2000, but not with Office 97.

To see if you have ADO installed on your system, first open an Access code module, and then open the References dialog box, under the Tools menu. If you see an entry such as the one highlighted in Figure 17-1, you’re all set.

Reference to the ADO object library

If, on the other hand, you have no such listing, you might want to do a file search of your hard disk, looking for MSADOxx.DLL. If you don’t have the file, then you can download the required software components from Microsoft’s web site. At the time of this writing, the URL is http://www.microsoft.com/data/. (If this URL is no longer valid, try searching for ADO or MDAC, which stands for Microsoft Data Access Components.) Note that the small version of the software kit is over 5 MB! Enjoy.
