Visual Basic User's Guide > Connecting to Databases
All data access is handled by two Methods, which are SaveToMemory and LoadFromMemory. The SaveToMemory Method stores formatted text to a byte array, which is then passed on to the database engine using Visual Basic's DAO or ADO functions. The following code uses DAO syntax.
[Visual Basic 6] Private Sub PutRecord() Dim ba() As Byte, s As String ba = TXTextControl1.SaveToMemory(5, 0) ' convert from ANSI to Unicode s = StrConv(ba, vbUnicode) rs.Edit rs("RTF") = s rs.Update End Sub
Other text formats can be used by simply changing the first parameter of the SaveToMemory method.
