ADO Command Object

previous next

Command Object

The ADO Command object is used to execute a single query against a database. The query can perform actions like creating, adding, retrieving, deleting or updating records.

If the query is used to retrieve data, the data will be returned as a RecordSet object. This means that the retrieved data can be manipulated by properties, collections, methods, and events of the Recordset object.

The major feature of the Command object is the ability to use stored queries and procedures with parameters.


set objCommand=Server.CreateObject("ADODB.command")
