Complete package for connecting to, querying, and closing connections to SQL, Oracle, and MS Access databases.

The main advantage of these functions is that they implement a "DSN-less" connection, which means you can run queries against a server without having to first add the datasource to your ODBC Data Source Administrator.

Just input the server name, database name, and optional uid/pwd to open a connection using an ActiveX control.

It takes only 4 lines of code to open a connection, run a query, and close the connection. It's that simple!
