ADO is a data access technology from the Microsoft .NET Framework that provides communication between relational and non-relational systems through a common set of components.ADO example and best practice is covered in this book. This book provide complete developer reference for ADO.You can start with Hello World kind of coding to become master within 7 days after reading this ActiveX Data Objects book.What is ADO?-ADO is a Microsoft technology-ADO refers to ActiveX Data Objects ( A ctiveX D ata O bjects )-ADO is a Microsoft Active-X component-ADO will be installed automatically with Microsoft's IIS-ADO is a programming interface for accessing data in a databaseAccess the database from an ASP pageThe usual way to access a database from within an ASP page is:1.Create an ADO connection to the database2.Open database connection3.Create an ADO Recordset4.Extract the data you need from the recordset5.Close the recordset6.Close the connectionContent cover in this ADO Book: Learn ActiveX Data Objects in 7 DaysIntroduction to ADOWhat is ADO?Access the database from an ASP pageADO database connectionCreate a DSN-less database connectionCreate an ODBC database connectionODBC connection to the MS Access databaseADO Connection ObjectADO RecordsetCreate an ADO Table RecordsetCreate an ADO SQL Recordset (ADO SQL Recordset)Extract data from a recordsetADO Recordset ObjectADO displayDisplay field names and field valuesDisplay field names and field values in an HTML tableAdd a title to an HTML tableADO queryInstanceDisplay selected dataADO sortingActivex controlInstanceSort dataADO add recordAdd records to a table in the databaseImportant mattersAbout no data fieldsADO update recordODBC connection to the MS Access databaseUpdate records in a database tableADO delete recordActivexobjectDelete records in the tableADO speeds up scripts with GetString()InstanceMulti-line Response.WriteGetString() methodADO Command objectCommand objectProgIDAttributesmethodsetADO Connection objectConnection objectProgIDAttributesmethodeventsetADO Error objectError objectgrammarAttributesADO Field ObjectField objectProgIDAttributesmethodsetADO Parameter objectParameter objectGrammarAttributesmethodADO Property ObjectProperty objectProgIDAttributesADO Record objectRecord object (ADO version 2.5)grammarAttributesmethodsetThe properties of the Fields collectionADO Recordset ObjectInstanceRecordset objectProgIDAttributesmethodEventsetThe properties of the Fields collectionProperties of the Properties collectionADO Stream ObjectStream object (ADO version 2.5)grammarAttributesmethodADO Data TypeYou have already learned ADO, what's next?ADO overviewYou have already learned ADO, what's next?Example Code with output: Code to display records in an HTML tableSearch records with "Companyname" starting with A: Show records with "Companyname" greater than EShow only USA customersLet users choose filtersSort ascending according to the specified field nameSort ascending according to the specified field nameSort descending according to the specified field nameLet the user choose to sort by that columnRecordset object GetRowsRecordset object GetString
You have learned the methods to the madness of Excel. Formulas and functions are friends instead of foes. Yet you know there's something missing that could make your job even easier. That "something" is efficient and effective data management. Managing Data with Excel is the only book on the market that focuses on just that. Learn how to efficiently move data, automate data storage and import data into worksheets and pivot tables. Case studies are included in each chapter to illustrate real-world applications of these functions. Invest your time in learning this now so that you can stop wasting your time figuring out how to work around problems.
For every developer who's uttered, "I wish I knew that before I started writing all this code!, " this guide demonstrates how to save time, write less code, and build more powerful, data-driver solutions using Microsoft ActiveX Data Objects. CD contains code samples in VB, along with examples in Visual C++, and Visual J++.
* Provides a good foundation for Microsoft Access and Visual Basic database programming * Offers thorough coverage of object-oriented programming, including how to create data handling classes and ActiveX controls for code reusability * Covers DAO, ADO, ASP, and SQL, and demonstrates how to take data mining to the next level
ADO.NET—the data-access component of the Microsoft .NET Framework—works with any component on any platform that understands XML. Get a solid handle on ADO.NET and learn how to exploit the database functionality of Microsoft Visual Basic® .NET and Microsoft Visual C#™ .NET with this step-by-step primer. You'll be working in ADO.NET right away with easy-to-grasp examples drawn from the real-world challenges developers face every day. Learn about the ADO.NET object model and how to use it to develop data-bound Windows® Forms and Web Forms. See how ADO.NET interacts with XML and how to access older versions of ADO from the .NET environment. Throughout, you'll find insightful tips and expert explanations for rapid acceleration of development productivity, faster applications, and more powerful results. Topics covered include: Getting started with ADO.NET Creating connections The Data command and DataReader Accessing data with the DataAdapter Working with DataSets Working with DataTables Controlling table views with DataViews Editing and updating data Data-binding in Windows Forms Data-binding in Web Forms Using the XML Designer to modify data structure Reading and writing XML with ADO.NET Using ADO from the .NET Framework CD features: * Examples of real-world solutions developed with ADO.NET, including sample code in Visual Basic .NET and Visual C# .NET A Note Regarding the CD or DVD The print version of this book ships with a CD or DVD.
