Can anyone tell me if using ole to connect to my databases is "out of vogue"? I've been using it for years and only recently heard that I should probably be using ADO.net or other instead.

I guess I could have just as easily looked that up on my own, sorry. Anyway it looks lie as early as 2011 MS announced that they recommend migrating to sqlclient as the .net provider. It'll pay for me to stay connected to these things in the future. Thanks for this : )
