    If you search the Visual C++ forum for the following you will find about 50+ threads on this subject...while most of the results are directed to SQL Server most of the syntax for connecting/talking to the DB is uniform across ADO, ODBC, OLEDB...

    Hi Vanaj,

    Thanks for your reply..

    If i search for that "connect Mysql Database using visual c++" most of the solutions are showing for console applications. But i need to connect to Mysql using windows forms application..

    I tried using the code given in attachment vc++.txt:

    when i run this code in a windows forms project i am getting nothing in DataGridview in my form.Even no errors are showing....Is there any error in OledbConnection?

    "a windows forms project" does not belong to Visual C++ Programming.
    Instead it is something like managed C++/CLI programming. So try to ask on the appropriate forum!
