ADO-Toolkit for LabVIEW™
ADO-Toolkit
The ADO-Toolkit is a collection of VIs for performing database operations within LabVIEW. Unlike other Database Toolkits for LabVIEW, this is not intended for easy use or drag an drop action, but for users, who have at least a minimum knowledge of SQL and databases. Even though there are some "easy VIs", I have to admit, I use them once in a blue moon. Why? Because like in measurements you have to know what you want to do and sooner or later (mostly sooner) you'll need the possibilities of SQL to mange your data. .
Currently there are 2 editions of the ADO-Toolkit, one for LabVIEW 7.1.x, which will not be developed further and one for the current version of LV (8.x). Both are licensed under the terms of the Creative Commons License which means, you can use this tool in all kinds of applications, even in comercial ones and the only thing you have to do is: leave the copyright comment in the VIs. If you don't want to, just take a look on the source code and create your own - it's not that difficult and the ADO-KnowHow is availiable for free at the MSDN Library. Maybe you'll have to read for a wile, but that's where I got the information from ;)
You can use the ADO-Toolkit with allmost any Database System, that supports an ODBC Connection, however it's optimized for Microsoft Access Databases and Microsoft SQL Server. This does not mean, that you will run into trouble, if you want to use e.g. a mySQL Server with the ADO-Toolkit, it's just not that comfortable, because there are no "special functions", which go into the details of that DB.
