If you are looking for a .MDB->Web solution (I suspect because you are
building a console app; maybe a CGI?), you may wish to look at our
product which will save you all of the coding: Database2Net. We are
about to release the new version; contact me if you would like to take a
look at it.
Otherwise, the answers to your questions:
start your code with:
HINSTANCE hMod = ::GetModuleHandle( "db2net.exe" );
ASSERT( hMod );
AfxSetResourceHandle( hMod );
(see MS knowledge base, look for "DAO" and "console")
end your code with:
(if not in MFC, you must close Jet explicitly. Addressed in same article
#include <afxdao.h> // MFC DAO classes
I think that is all you need. In addition, just use CDAODatabases and
CDAORecordsets as you need them.
