Progress database in version 9 has built-in two database engines: 4GL (for applications written in Progress 4GL language) and SQL-92 (for applications that access database using SQL-92 standard). If you have no product for 4GL client you can consider JDBC database driver (for Java-based tools) or ODBC driver (for .NET for example). There is no way to use ADO, the only way for Microsoft tools is ODBC driver (also for earlier Progress version 8).
