ODBC API Calls SQLTables/SQL Columns

ODBC API Calls SQLTables/SQL Columns

ODBC API Calls SQLTables/SQL Columns

Does anyone have any Visual Basic code that calls the ODBC API functions SQLTables and SQL Columns.  

Or, alternatively, does anyone know where I can find an exaustive list of all the various ODBC API constants?  The file ODBC32.TXT from Mircosoft is not up to date.  It's missing constants like SQL_ALL_CATALOGS.

Microsoft has such a unique way of providing incredibly detailed information on a subject, like the 500 pages on ODBS Functions in the MSDN LIbrary, without actually telling you what you need to know.  

Please don't refer me to RDO unless you know where I can get it from as I don't have the Enterprise edition of VB.

Thanks for helping a frustrated programmer.

RE: ODBC API Calls SQLTables/SQL Columns

I am using a DSN-less connection:
Don't know if this will work for you or not.
In my case the SQL server database is hosted by our ISP thus the "server=WEB_SERVER.com;"

<%@ Language=VBScript %>

<title>Brochure Request</title>

    Set Conn = server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
    Conn.Open "driver=SQL Server;server=WEB_SERVER.com;uid=USERID;pwd=PASSWORD;database=YOUR_SQL_DATABASE_NAME;"
    Set RS = Conn.Execute("SELECT field_name FROM [tablename]")

    somevalue=RS("field_name ")
