Remote Data Objects - Computer Definition
An application program interface (API) from Microsoft Corporation permitting individuals writing Windows applications to get access to the database. RDO statements embedded in the code use the lower-layer Data Access Objects (DAO) for allowing database access. Databases reply to these requests by writing to the DAO interface.
RDO has developed into ActiveX Data Objects (ADO), the program interface that the Microsoft Corporation currently suggests for new programs. ADO not only gives individuals access to nonrelational databases but also is considerably easier to use than RDO.
