OLEDB connection is different from ADODB connection.
you call out an ADODB but I presume use an OLE DB connection string... idk, this
is not a connection string I recognize, but I almost strictly do ADO (and it is not an ADO connection string)server=localhost;db=platform_12;driver=MySQL;uid=root;pwd=admin

Yes, that is a valid connection string, according to
But it's a really really old driver. It's from the days of MySQL version 2.3 or so (roughly 13 or 14 years ago).
You'd be much better off installing the MyODBC 5.1 driver, especially if you are working with MySQL version 5 or later.
(Prothman's examples don't show the 5.1 driver, but the connection string is the same except for the name of the driver itself.)
