   #import "Msado15.dll" rename_namespace("ado15")
The database file Adostudent.mdb is included with the sample. The sample opens a database connection with a DSN-less ConnectionString, so you do not need to specify a data source name (DSN).

The function CrackStrVariant takes a variant and returns a CString. This function was copied in its entirety from the DAOVIEW sample that ships with Visual C++.
