Accessing an ADO Recordset or Record from ADO.NET

In the .NET Framework, you can access existing components that return ADO Recordset or Record objects, and you can also access ADO Recordset and Record objects directly using the .NET Framework Data Provider for OLE DB. The .NET Framework Data Provider for OLE DB supports filling a DataSet from an ADO Recordset or Record. This enables you to consume existing Component Object Model (COM) objects that return ADO objects, without having to rewrite them entirely using the .NET Framework.
