Chapter 17. ADO and OLE DB > The ADO Object Model

17.4. The ADO Object Model

OLE DB is designed for C programmers. In order to make it accessible to VB programmers, Microsoft created the ADO object model. This model gives VB programmers access to certain aspects of the OLE DB paradigm, by allowing the programmer to program an object model, rather than having to use the OLE DB API functions directly. For instance, a VB programmer can get access to a data provider by creating a Connection object and setting its Provider property. Thus, the Connection object represents a connection to a data store, through a data provider.

The ADO object model is actually quite small, even smaller than the DAO object model. Table 17.1 shows the complete list of ADO objects (along with corresponding collection objects).
