VI. ActiveX Data Objects > 18. ADOX: Jet Data Definition in ADO

Chapter 18. ADOX: Jet Data Definition in ADO

ADOX is an acronym for ADO Extensions for Data Definition and Security. When making comparisons between ActiveX Data Objects (ADO) and Data Access Objects (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, but not just in the context of Jet databases. ADOX is intended to be a universal data-definition object model. Of course, as with ADO, it requires support from OLE DB data providers. Our concern is with ADOX in relation to Jet.

I plan to discuss the role of ADOX in various data definition operations, such as creating a Jet database and creating and altering Jet database tables.
