Extended CopiaFacts Database Support

CopiaFacts now provides support for a wide variety of external databases using ADO. ADO, or Active-X Data Objects, is Microsoft's latest technology for universal data access. ADO uses MDAC (Microsoft Data Access Components) and COM to build on earlier ODBC and OLE DB data access solutions. CopiaFacts now provides a convenient way for you to use your existing databases within CopiaFacts scripting applications.
