This example is for ADO (I think). I was asking about ODBC, not ADO.  
I'm waffling in my usage, since if I use the ADO driver, then I'm sinking
deeper and deeper into MS dependancy.

Pressing F1 in this environment starts down the twisty path of the .NET docs.
They are typically pretty bad, at least for me, with very limited examples.  

I've bought most of the O'Reilly C# books, and have tried to absorb, but that
was a while ago.  I had about a month of concentrated coding (total crap) 
about 2 years ago, and then nothing until last week.  

At this point I've getting comfortable again.  Not good, just comfortable.  On 
a scale of 1 - 10, I'm probably a 1 1/2.
