In this video you'll learn how to open an SQL Query file, read its contents and use the result to populate an ADO recordset. You'll learn how to use file picker and folder picker dialog boxes to allow the user to pick which queries to run. You'll also learn a little about the Scripting Runtime object library and how to work with FileSystemObjects and TextStreams.
