I've never heard of anyone using ADO.NET in any version of Access, and can't
imagine any valid reason for doing so. You certainly could not use that as
the access mechanism for bound forms and reports, and I am not certain
whether you can use it in VBA code -- at a minimum you'd need to be sure the
Dot Net Framework was installed on the using computer.

ADO.NET is the DotNet Initiative successor to classic ADO (which can be used
in Access, and is the choice for use with ADP databases). Access supports
DAO (the native language of the Jet database engine), and "classic" ADO.
With apropriate library references, classic ADO can be used in MDB
databases, as well as ADP databases. All these work so very nicely that I
can't feature why YAAM (Yet Another Access Method) would be useful.

You don't use ADO.net + Access 2003 together. However a book that has a
rather comprhensive treatment is Ado and ADO.NET programming (published
by Sybex). It's a real huge one.

Don't know if anyon would be able to offer some others for you.
