[Solved] List all available ADODB providers

3 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

A few months ago someone posted a function that scanned a PC registry and returned a list of all the available ADODB connections installed. I've been searching on and off all afternoon trying to locate it. Does anyone remember which topic this was in? As far as my failing memory goes it was a post part way through an ADO related topic.

Thanks

Hmm... 

 

_ADO_GetProvidersList()
????

But this function not list connections but drivers/providers.
Active connection you can list with relation to server, but for this you should first connect to this server.

      I hope my title is good enough.
      I'm using the ADO UDF and I have question regarding editing SQL records with this UDF.
      The owner of the UDF suggested an idea, but maybe there is another trix.

      Hi all,
      This is an UDF for working with Access(2007 above) databases. I would like to say thanks to @spudw2k for his wonderful ADODB udf. That is my inspiration. And i borrowed three functions from him. The difference of this UDF is that it is using SQL statements as parameters. So if you know the SQL, then you can easily work with this UDF.
      Functions in this UDF
      1. _Start_Connection
      2. _Close_Connection
      3. _Create_Table
      4. _Delete_Table
      5. _Alter_Table
      6. _Delete_FromTable
      7. _Insert_Data - You can use this to update or delete data
      8. _Get_Records
      This is an example. This example uses an access database named Test. It is packed with the zip file

If $MsgBox8 = 6 Then ; Now, we are going to delete the entire table Local $DeleteTable = _Delete_Table("DROP TABLE TestTable;") ConsoleWrite($DeleteTable & " Table deleted" & @CRLF) Else Exit EndIf ; Last but not least, close the connection. _Close_Connection() ConsoleWrite("Examples Over...." & @CRLF) EndFunc ;==>Example1 Here is the files.
