APENDICE : ACTIVEX DATA OBJECT

FUENTE WWW.W3SCHOOLS.COM

Command Object

The ADO Command object is used to execute a single query against a database. The query can perform actions like creating, adding, retrieving, deleting or updating records.

If the query is used to retrieve data, the data will be returned as a RecordSet object. This means that the retrieved data can be manipulated by properties, collections, methods, and events of the Recordset object.

The major feature of the Command object is the ability to use stored queries and procedures with parameters.

ProgID

set objCommand=Server.CreateObject(“ADODB.command”)

Properties

Property Description
ActiveConnection Sets or returns a definition for a connection if the connection is closed, or the current Connection object if the connection is open
CommandText Sets or returns a provider command

CommandType Sets or returns the type of a Command object
Name Sets or returns the name of a Command object
Prepared Sets or returns a Boolean value that, if set to True, indicates that the command should save a prepared version of the query before the first execution
State Returns a value that describes if the Command object is open, closed, connecting, executing or retrieving data

Connection Object

The ADO Connection Object is used to create an open connection to a data source. Through this connection, you can access and manipulate a database.

If you want to access a database multiple times, you should establish a connection using the Connection object. You can also make a connection to a database by passing a connection string via a Command or Recordset object. However, this type of connection is only good for one specific, single query.

ProgID

set objConnection=Server.CreateObject(“ADODB.connection”)

Collections

Collection Description

Properties Contains all the Property objects of the Connection object

Error Object

The ADO Error object contains details about data access errors that have been generated during a single operation.

ADO generates one Error object for each error. Each Error object contains details of the specific error, and are stored in the Errors collection. To access the errors, you must refer to a specific connection.

To loop through the Errors collection:

Syntax

objErr.property

ProgID

set objField=Server.CreateObject(“ADODB.field”)

Collections

Collection Description

Parameter Object

The ADO Parameter object provides information about a single parameter used in a stored procedure or query.

A Parameter object is added to the Parameters Collection when it is created. The Parameters Collection is associated with a specific Command object, which uses the Collection to pass parameters in and out of stored procedures and queries.

Parameters can be used to create Parameterized Commands. These commands are (after they have been defined and stored) using parameters to alter some details of the command before it is executed. For example, an SQL SELECT statement could use a parameter to define the criteria of a WHERE clause.

There are four types of parameters: input parameters, output parameters, input/output parameters and return parameters.

Property Object

The ADO Property object represents a dynamic characteristic of an ADO object that is defined by the provider.

Each provider that talks with ADO has different ways of interacting with ADO. Therefore, ADO needs to store information about the provider in some way. The solution is that the provider gives specific information (dynamic properties) to ADO. ADO stores each provider property in a Property object that is again stored in the Properties Collection. The Collection is assigned to either a Command object, Connection object, Field object, or a Recordset object.

ProgID

set objProperty=Server.CreateObject(“ADODB.property”)

Properties

Property Description
Attributes Returns the attributes of a Property object
Name Sets or returns a the name of a Property object
Type Returns the type of a Property object
Value Sets or returns the value of a Property object

Record Object (ADO version 2.5)

The ADO Record object is used to hold a row in a Recordset, a directory, or a file from a file system.

Only structured databases could be accessed by ADO in versions prior 2.5. In a structured database, each table has the exact same number of columns in each row, and each column is composed of the same data type.

The Record object allows access to data-sets where the number of columns and/or the data type can be different from row to row.

Syntax

ActiveConnection Sets or returns which Connection object a Record object belongs to
Mode Sets or returns the permission for modifying data in a Record object

Property Description

Item(named_item/number) Returns a specified item in the fields collection. Example: itemfields = rec.Fields.Item(1)
or
itemfields = rec.Fields.Item(“Name”)

Recordset Object

The ADO Recordset object is used to hold a set of records from a database table. A Recordset object consist of records and columns (fields).

In ADO, this object is the most important and the most used object to manipulate data from a database.

ProgID

set objRecordset=Server.CreateObject(“ADODB.recordset”)


When you first open a Recordset, the current record pointer will point to the first record and the BOF and EOF properties are False. If there are no records, the BOF and EOF property are True.

Recordset objects can support two types of updating:

  • Immediate updating - all changes are written immediately to the database once you call the Update method.
  • Batch updating - the provider cache multiple changes and then send them to the database with the UpdateBatch method.

In ADO there are 4 different cursor types defined:

  • Dynamic cursor - Allows you to see additions, changes, and deletions by other users.
  • Keyset cursor - Like a dynamic cursor, except that you cannot see additions by other users, and it prevents access to records that other users have deleted. Data changes by other users will still be visible.
  • Static cursor - Provides a static copy of a recordset for you to use to find data or generate reports. Additions, changes, or deletions by other users will not be visible. This is the only type of cursor allowed when you open a client-side Recordset object.
  • Forward-only cursor - Allows you to only scroll forward through the Recordset. Additions, changes, or deletions by other users will not be visible.

The cursor type can be set by the CursorType property or by the CursorType parameter in the Open method.

Note: Not all providers supports all methods or properties of the Recordset object.
