I don't claim to be an export in this area, but here is how I am doing things:

ADO connection snipit:

     Set oTargetConn = New ADODB.Connection
     oTargetConn.ConnectionString = "DRIVER={PostgreSQL};" _
             & "SERVER=" & Me.txtHost & ";" _
             & "UID=" & Me.txtLogin & ";" _
             & "PWD=" & Me.txtPassword & ";" _
             & "PORT=" & Me.txtPort & ";" _
             & "Database=" & Me.txtDatabase & ";"

I specifically tried to avoid using a defined ODBC definition.  Also I am 
not using bound controls in my application so I don't do anything with the 
built in vb data objects.

Enthusiastically,

Dave Leedom
