I don't know much about ADPs, but Google seems to indicate that an ADP is
basically an access database without the database; ie, no actual data in it,
just the queries, forms, etc. , and it is intended to interface with a SQL
database via OLEDB. If that's right then you probably should look at the
SQL database itself.
