Yes. ADO is the common method.

Set DatabaseConnection = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.CONNECTION")
DatabaseConnection.Open "ADO connection string. Could directly reference a driver and database, or be an ODBC link"

Set DatabaseTable = DatabaseConnection.Execute("SELECT * FROM Users")
do while not DatabaseTable.EOF
Response.Write DatabaseTable.Fields("Name")
