In all programming languages you have to add components/packages to do
certain things.  In the case of Python you have to add a package that allows
you to use a database.  There are many packages made for Python for this
purpose.
Also, Python can use ADO in Windows.  Please search for Python and ADO in
Google.  There are articles that describe how to do that.
