Hello, I am new to VB.NET. I would like to know if someone can suggest
an online source where I could learn ADO. At this moment I have a form
containing a number of text fields. I now want to insert these into a
database table (Access). I would appreciate any help

Ric,

In addition to Anthony

ADO is not from dotNet, that is ADONET it sounds the same however is
completly different. For Access you have to use OleDB.

In this resourcekit you can find samples and walkthroughs for it, (although
it is about MSDE and SQLserver can you do the same when you change the
connectionstrings and SQLclient.SQL everywhere for OleDb.OleDb

And if you have problems installing the resource kit

Connectionstrings
