Converting a dynamic list into an ADODB Recordset

This follows on from another article i wrote a while ago [How to use the .Net 4.0 Dynamic Keyword to convert a recordset to an object] This code shows how to convert from the dynamic list back into a recordset.

The example does not attempt to determine the field type so it just sets it to an VarChar(255) field which is nullable. If you want to add your own code in here to determine the type and size etc… please feel free.

      public ADODB.Recordset ConvertToRecordSet(List obj){
            ADODB.Recordset _rs = new ADODB.Recordset() {  CursorType= ADODB.CursorTypeEnum.adOpenDynamic, CursorLocation = ADODB.CursorLocationEnum.adUseClient };

            foreach (KeyValuePair item in obj as IDictionary) {
            _rs.Open((object)null, (object)null, ADODB.CursorTypeEnum.adOpenStatic,ADODB.LockTypeEnum.adLockBatchOptimistic, 0);
            return _rs;

    Ask your auto insurance agent to provide more information to you regarding these
    discounts in order to save more money. Be careful about the
    insurance cover you opt for with the hire car.
