Well, I was mostly feeling out ideas... mainly because I don't know how to
write com objects or an OLE DB provider. :P
The 6th through the 10th I have a training course for VB and it gets into
Active X DLLs and Com objects, so naturally I was thinking of what I would
use my new found power for and I thought of that as a possibility.
As for the ole db... does anyone have an idea where to start looking for
that info? Would it have to be written in C? I found a company that sells
software that creates ole dbs...
