Programs written in Visual Basic 6.0 can access Microsoft Access 2003 databases. Knowledge of programming elements, such as functions and loops, and knowledge of databases and SQL is required to write effective code in Microsoft Visual Basic to connect to Microsoft Access 2003 databases. The ADODB object can create a connection to Microsoft Access 2003 databases. The database records can be accessed with the ADODBecordset API. The Open() interface is used to create and access the records of the Microsoft Access 2003 database. SQL may be used to perform operations such as searching the database for matching information.
