  What is ADO? - A Word Definition From the Webopedia Computer Dictionary
ADO is designed to eventually replace Data Access Objects (DAO) and Remote Data Objects (RDO).
Unlike RDO and DAO, which are designed only for accessing relational databases, ADO is more general and can be used to access all sorts of different types of data, including web pages, spreadsheets, and other types of documents.
Together with OLE DB and ODBC, ADO is one of the main components of Microsoft's Universal Data Access (UDA) specification, which is designed to provide a consistent way of accessing data regardless of how the data are structured.

It provides a layer between programming languages and OLE DB (a means of accessing data stores, whether they be databases or otherwise, in a uniform manner), which allows a developer to write programs which access data, without knowing how the database is implemented.
ADO was introduced by Microsoft in the winter of 1996.
ADO component is used in conjunction with a high-level language, such as VBScript in an Active Server Pages (ASP) environment, or Visual Basic.

 ActiveX Data Objects - a Whatis.com definition - see also: ADO
ActiveX Data Objects (ADO) is an application program interface from Microsoft that lets a programmer writing Windows applications get access to a relational or non-relational database from both Microsoft and other database providers.
As part of ActiveX, ADO is also part of Microsoft's overall Component Object Model (COM), its component-oriented framework for putting programs together.
ADO evolved from an earlier Microsoft data interface, Remote Data Objects (RDO).

 Visual Studio Magazine - Follow the Top 10 ADO.NET Tips   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03)
Rebuilt from the ground up—but aligned with ADO as much as is possible and sensible—ADO.NET makes the transition from a client/server, connection-based model to a model that enables disconnected front ends to download records, work offline, then reconnect to submit changes.
If you're a former ADO developer who's embraced ADO.NET, you might think of data access in terms of a rather bloated and all-powerful object, such as the Recordset.
In contrast, you can write data-access code in ADO that exploits the generic pattern of OLE DB providers fully and considers the underlying data source as a mere parameter.
