ADO objects are a higher level abstraction of lower level OLEDB, or ODBC

You can program directly against the OLEDB objects if you want, but it's not
very user friendly.

ADO Object Reference:
(you should have this bookmarked - lots of great info)

OLEDB Reference:

http://support.microsoft.com <- click the "Contact Microsoft" link, and then
you need to locate your country.

: Why?

Because Microsoft doesn't want people using a desktop OS as a server. So you
can use a Windows XP Pro machine to serve up to 10 file/print SMB
connections concurrently (which is fine in a small office type environment).
But once you start getting bigger networks, Microsoft wants you to buy a
server OS.
