Hi, I'm brand new to ADO in C++, but I can't get it to connect, here is the connection code I have
#import "c:\program files\common files\system\ado\msado26.tlb" no_namespace rename( "EOF", "A_EOF" )

//..Later On..I took out the real UN, PW, DBNAME, and HOST

HRESULT hr = ::CoInitialize(NULL);
_ConnectionPtr Conn;


string ConnStr = "Provider=SQLOLEDB;Data Source=my.mssql.com;Initial Catalog=my_db_name;User Id=my_userid;Password=my_db_password;" ;

Conn->Open(BSTR(ConnStr.c_str()), BSTR("my_userid"), BSTR("my_db_password"), adOpenUnspecified);
catch (_com_error&)
cout << "Error Connectiong";

I'm not quite sure how to check on the errors because I've never really used any com objects (except DX) So anything I'm doing wrong that anyone notices? Thanks, kag1
