Connecting to Data Sources
The previous two chapters covered the fundamentals required to start using databases. Chapter 1 showed the various types of data sources available, and you saw how you can use text files, Extensible Markup Language (XML) files, spreadsheets, and the Active Directory store, not to mention real databases as data sources. Chapter 2 then moved on to talk about relational databases, and by the end of the chapter you had fundamentally the same database in three different flavors: MSDE, Access, and MySQL.
