Hi guys

Im doing a little project(for a chat client for coursework) and am looking to create a chat program in vb6, ive got the idea etc.. ready, but need to know if i can connect it to a remote mysql database, e.g. im on my computer the db is in amsterdam, and my program allows me to connect to my contact list stored on the amsterdam server and i can choose who to talk to (like MSN messenger kinda thing)????

I think you need to use something called ADO, although when I did this same thing many (many, so I don't remember the specifics so don't ask ;P) years ago I think I just used a plain ODBC connection and used SQL statements to query the database.
