VB.NET学习笔记:ADO.NET操作ACCESS数据库——微软官方原版SqlHelper类

SQLHelper.vb是2004年微软发布的一个使用ADO.Net方法对SQL Server数据库进行操作的封装类。在网上贴出的SqlHelper类大多是C#版本,如果需要VB.NET版本的微软官方原版SqlHelper类,可以进行如下操作获取。

一、获取SQLHelper.vb

需要从微软官方下载Data Access Application Block for .NET v2,下载地址:https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?displaylang=en&id=435 。如图:
Data Access Application Block for .NET v2下载地址
下载下来是一个.msi安装程序,直接安装就可以,然后在安装文件夹(C:\Program Files\Microsoft Application Blocks for .NET\Data Access v2\Code\VB\Microsoft.ApplicationBlocks.Data)里找到SQLHelper.vb文件,用记事本打开文件即可看到代码。

二、SQLHelper帮助类代码

SQLHelper.vb代码如下:
