Preface to the Third Edition

As with the second edition, let me begin by thanking all of those readers who have helped to make this book so successful.

The third edition of the book includes two new chapters; the first of which is Chapter 18. With the sad and, in my opinion, highly unfortunate demise of DAO at Microsoft’s hands, it seemed necessary to bring the book up to speed on that aspect of ADO that gives the programmer most of the functionality of the Data Definition Language (DDL) portion of DAO.

ADOX is an acronym for ADO Extensions for Data Definition and Security. When making comparisons between ADO and DAO, proponents of DAO will point out that ADO does not include features for data definition—that is, features that can be used to create and alter databases and their components (tables, columns, indexes, etc.). This is precisely the purpose of ADOX. (Our concern here is with ADOX as it relates to Jet.)
