What Is ADOX?

In the last several chapters, you’ve learned how to use ADO to explore and manipulate data. But there are limitations to the things that you can do with ADO.

You can’t, for example, create a new table or a new query with ADO, no matter what you do with the Connection, Command, or Recordset objects.

Many developers might never feel this limitation, but being able to create new objects from code can be incredibly useful.
