Connection Object


A Connection object represents a connection to an ODBC database (ODBCDirect workspaces only).







A Connection is a non-persistent object that represents a connection to a remote database. The Connection object is only available in ODBCDirect workspaces (that is, a Workspace object created with the type option set to dbUseODBC).

Note Code written for earlier versions of DAO can continue to use the Database object for backward compatibility, but if the new features of a Connection are desired, you should revise code to use the Connection object. To help with code conversion, you can obtain a Connection object reference from a Database by reading the Connection property of the Database object. Conversely, you can obtain a Database object reference from the Connection object’s Database property.
