I though ODBC is deprecated, maybe not.

Deployment is a snip with ADO. ADO also provides a consistent interface

But I notice absolutely no difference in performance or versatility
ADO and ODBC. Anyone care to point out what might be the theoratical
difference between the two?
(BTW I use DSN-less ODBC connections)
