Database/File Format Supported Native? Via Notes
Microsoft SQL Server No ADO/ODBC Expect this to work well, since MS can been concentrating on Access and SQL Server in ADO. The next version of SQL Server will support ADO/OLEDB as its native interface.
Sybase Adaptive Server Anywhere No ADO/ODBC Works fine with Client-based cursors. Problems with Server-based cursors because of problems with the SQL Anywhere ODBC driver's bookmark implementation.
Access (MDB) No ADO/ODBC Expect this to work well, since MS can been concentrating on Access and SQL Server in ADO.
