Q

Can I write code using VB editor to query MS Excel VBA?

I'm currently developing an accounting application using Microsoft's Excel VBA . What I would like to know is if...

it is possible to write a code using Visual Basic editor to query my database.

Yes, you can use VBA to query most kinds of databases.

DAO can be used to query Jet Databases (MDB files). It is a simple coding style, specifically designed to support the Jet database engine, but adequate for many desktop tasks.

Almost any ODBC compatible database can be manipulated with ADO. This opens nearly all of the client/server databases like MS SQL Server, Oracle, DB2, etc.
