Default Convert ADO recordset to DAO recordset

My company has some legacy code that uses DAO against an Access database. On some of our large sites with 10,000+ records per table the application slows to an unusable speed. We would like to move the back end from Access to MSDE or SQL Server. Unfortunatly the schedual does not allowed for the time to re write the application in ADO to connect to those sources.

I am wondering if anyone knows of a way to connect to the database with ADO and retreive recordsets from it, but then move those recordsets to DAO so that our controls can bind to them.

Some recordsets will be thousands of records long so a record by record move is not feasible.

Thanks is advance.

You can continue to use DAO against a MSDE or SQL Server database. You do not need to change the code, just change the connection string to the database.
