Talking to Databases

Updating and reading information to and from databases is one of the most common needs of any developer, regardless of language or platform. Certainly, most applications written for business use depend on databases. VBScript developers are definitely not left out in the cold here. Microsoft's Active Data Objects (ADO) provide VBScript authors with full access to just about any data storage mechanism available, including relational databases (such as Access, SQL Server, and Oracle), object databases, flat files, and e-mail and groupware repositories.
