DAO in .Net ?

I have a VB app that use DAO to connect to Access2K. I am thinking of
changing the app to .Net, my question is can I keep the DAO, (mainly because
it runs faster).
TIA.

Hi Phil,

If you have collect more than enough documentation about DAO, does not ask
any question somewhere, takes all responsibilities for errors on yourself,
do never want to use Interenet in your applications and probably more
disadvantage, I think that it will not be impossible to use DAO.

Otherwise use the very good ADO.net tools also not ADO, both DAO and ADO
will give you mostly deployment problems what is better to avoid with
dotNet.

I hope this helps anyway

Personally, I don't see any reason for sticking to DAO. Do it the .NET
way -> ADO.NET.

You can continue to use DAO but if you encounter any issues with the VS.NET generated interop
assembly I would recommend using the DAO PIA in XP.
