Remote Database Connectivity

Narinder Kumar Sharma


Much of the programming done today requires data access. With large amounts of data being maintained in databases, access mechanisms that allow manipulation of this data are vital. Visual Basic is a popular programming package because of its user-friendly interface and data access features. Two popular data access mechanisms are data bound controls with data access objects, and remote data controls with remote data objects.

The main difference between these methods are that data bound controls are usually used to connect to desktop databases, and remote data objects are used to connect to client/server data (for client database manipulation of a remote database).
