The main problem is that you're using ADODCs. Nobody uses them, because it's much easier and more flexible to use ADO objects once you learn how. IMHO, since most of the experts here abandoned the ADODC at the first sign of trouble, you won't find too many specific solutions to specific problems. For myself, I have used the ADODC once in a production application, to work around a bug in the DataRepeater control. I probably could have used ADO objects as well.

If you decide to use the ADO objects, let us know. We'll be glad to help--after you've been through the tutorials and set up a basic connection and recordset.
