The ADO Record object in ADO 2.6 has been enhanced to support the retrieval of a single Record. The data obtained is read-only. In case the query results in more than one record, only the first record encountered is returned. The sample performs the following to retrieve one single record:
  1. Sets up a connection to a SQL Server 2000 database:
    _bstr_t m_Conn("PROVIDER=SQLOLEDB.1;SQL2000Server=Server;Database=Northwind;uid=sa;pwd=;");
    hr = conn->Open(m_Conn,L"",L"",-1);
  2. Sets up the ADO Record to contain the query:
  3. Opens the Record object by using the adExecuteCommand enumeration:
    hr = rec->Open(vtEmpty,vtEmpty,adModeReadWrite,adFailIfNotExists, adOpenExecuteCommand,L"",L"");

Steps to Run the Sample

  1. Create an empty Win32 console application.
  2. Insert STonSel.cpp into the project.
  3. Modify the connection string to refer to a valid SQL Server 2000 database.
  4. Compile and then run the application.
