    Database connection...

    I have this code which should connect to a MS Access database and output the string values of "table´".. Well see for yourself

    #include <stdio.h>
    #include "E:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio\VC98\mfc\SRC\stdafx.h"
    #import "c:\program files\common files\system\ado\msado15.dll" rename("EOF", "EOFile")
    struct StartOLEProcess {
    StartOLEProcess() {
    ~StartOLEProcess() {
    } _start_StartOLEProcess;
    int main() {
    ADODB::_ConnectionPtr Con = NULL;
    ADODB::_RecordsetPtr RecSet = NULL;
    ADODB::FieldPtr pStrings;
    _variant_t vStrings;
    char sStrings[150];
    HRESULT hr = S_OK;
    VARIANT *RecordsAffected = NULL;
    hr = Con.CreateInstance(__uuidof(ADODB::Connection));
    printf("\nCreateInstance result=%d uuidof=%d\n", hr, __uuidof(ADODB::Connection));
    printf("\nConnection object created.");
    Con->Open("Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0; Data Source=C:\\database.mdb", "", "password", 0);
    printf("\nConnection opened...");
    RecSet = Con->Execute("SELECT * FROM strings", RecordsAffected, 1);
    printf("\nSQL statement processed");
    pStrings = RecSet->Fields->GetItem(Table);
    printf("\nGetting data now...\n");
    while(!RecSet->EOFile) {
    vStrings = pQuestions->Value;
    WideCharToMultiByte(CP_ACP, 0, vStrings.bstrVal, -1, sStrings, sizeof(sStrings), NULL, NULL);
    printf("\n%s", sStrings);
    printf("\n\nEnd of data..");
    RecSet = NULL;
    printf("\nClosed and removed recordset object.");
    Con = NULL;
    printf("\nClosed and removed connection object.");
    return 0;
    I can compile it okey, but with one warning:

    d:\c++\database\debug\msado15.tlh(409) : warning C4146: unary minus operator applied to unsigned type, result still unsigned
    database.exe - 0 error(s), 1 warning(s)
    so it compiles okey, and then when I try to run the program, the following output comes:

    CreateInstance result=0 uuidof=1300
    Connection object created.
    This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way.
    Please contact the application's support team for more information.
    Does somebody have a solution to my problem?

    Thx in advance

    I wish I could help pal, but that's just beyond me.

    As a matter of fact, I'm a newbie to C/C++/C# programming.
