    #ifndef wrapper to reference dll

    I'm using Devc++ and am wanting to import/include the msado.dll into my project but i'm getting the error,

    #import is obsolete, use an #ifndef wrapper in the header file
    Code:
    #import "c:\Program Files\Common Files\System\ADO\msado15.dll" \
    can sombody show me exactly how to write this ifndef statement for the above dll.

    In the GNU preprocessor (what Dev C++ uses), the #import directive is not what you think it is.
    In short, you'll have to get your ADO COM the "old fashioned" way.

    You could have a look at DispHelper, especially the ADO sample.
