ADO and the Visual Database Tools
There are all kinds of Visual Basic developers who make a decent living writing production applications. Many of these folks want to write better applications more quickly—that’s what drew them to Visual Basic in the first place. Microsoft has attempted to make the process of writing typical applications easier and with less code. The Visual Database Tools (a.k.a. Da Vinci Tools) were included in Visual Basic 6.0 to this end—to make creating applications easier. However, sometimes these tools rob you of design choices that can make your code faster, more robust, and work with fewer problems.
