ADO Record Object- Complete Reference

Record Object (ADO version 2.5)

The ADO Record object is used to hold a row in a Recordset, a directory, or a file from a file system.
Only structured databases could be accessed by ADO in versions prior 2.5. In a structured database, each table has the exact same number of columns in each row, and each column is composed of the same data type.
The Record object allows access to data-sets where the number of columns and/or the data type can be different from row to row.
