Microsoft scanned this file for viruses. Microsoft used the most current virus-detection software that was available on the date that the file was posted. The file is stored on security-enhanced servers that help to prevent any unauthorized changes to the file. It is not necessary to use the absolute path for the ADO .dll file. You can add the path to Visual Studio IDE from the Tools menu under Options. Select the Directory tab and add the path to the Library files list, which allows you to use the statement:

   #import "Msado15.dll" rename_namespace("ado15")

The database file Adostudent.mdb is included with the sample. The sample opens a database connection with a DSN-less ConnectionString, so you do not need to specify a data source name (DSN).

The function CrackStrVariant takes a variant and returns a CString. This function was copied in its entirety from the DAOVIEW sample that ships with Visual C++.
