VB and Oracle: Use ADO or ODBC?

VB and Oracle: Use ADO or ODBC?

Question:
What’s the consensus as to whether it is better to use the ADO native driver, or use the ADO ODBC wrapper with Oracle?

Answer:
Microsoft now provides a native OLE DB driver for Oracle that is, by some reports, faster than Oracle’s own driver. The most efficient approach is to use the Oracle OLE DB provider directly with ADO. If you can’t find the Oracle OLE DB provider, the ODBC wrapper is the next best thing if you want to stick with ADO.
