The Connection Object

The Connection object is the highest level of the ADO object model. The Connection object allows you to establish a connection to a data source. You must declare a Connection object before you can use it, as shown here:

Dim cnConnection as ADODB.Connection

After declaring a Connection object, you must then instantiate a new Connection object, as follows:

Set cnConnection = New ADODB.Connection

Once instantiated, a Connection object can be opened to connect to Access and other databases. You open a connection by using the Open method of the Connection object. The Open method accepts various parameters, including a connection string, user id, password, and options.
