Recommendation and Question

P: n/a
Ok, Step 1:

If you have bought the book Visual Basic.net Black Book by
coriolis...throw it out

the examples are screwey, most don't compile as-is and a lot of them are so
loosely covered they look like they came out of some script-kiddie's
bedroom.

then a question:

What is a good way to get to a MSSQL database without using these crappy
data adapters. they are WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY too slow
for what I need to do. plus the overhead on 11 threads is going to be
murder.

so the question is, of course, how do I do it like I used to in vb6

I used a reference to adodb and was able to make calls like

dim oRS as new adodb.recordset etc

I think I've found that componenet, but I can't figure out how to get the
connection to the database in the first place, does anyone know how or have
a few dozen lines of a pre-made template? thanks -S

Use a datareader?
