I just read the article "OLEDB for Me" on this site that describes how and why to make DB connections using the OLEDB provider over regular DSN or DSN-less connections.<BR><BR>I have messed around with this some in the past and was curious: Is connection pooling supported when using the OLEDB provider to connect to the DB? Most everything I read about connection pooling mentions ODBC. My understanding is that ODBC rides on OLEDB and that by using the OLEDB provider you eliminate that layer. But do you also eliminate connection pooling support.<BR><BR>This is an important issue. I hope someone has some insight into it.<BR><BR>Thanks,<BR><BR>Jeremy
