Database access using UDL

Published on 08/14/01



UDL is a rather old way of accessing a database, but it still works and is another way for the beginner to get access to the database that he is using. The samples are for Classic ASP, but the concept of UDL files is the same for .NET data access.


UDL is a plain text file with a connection string, just like you've been using (assuming that you use DRIVER={DRIVER];DBQ=[DBQ];PQD=[Password] ), and the great part is that it doesn't take much to set it up.  I'm just going to go over the basics, but there isn't much more to it really.
