ActiveX Data Objects (ADO) and Object Linking and Embedding Database (OLE DB), its underlying technology, currently play a big part in data access. Microsoft has unequivocally committed its future to it, and rightly so. The paperless office has yet to appear, but the amount of data stored on computer systems increases every day. This is illustrated by the rate at which the Web is expanding—and that’s just the public face of data. Much more data is hidden from general view in corporate applications or intranets.
