What is an error 3000 (described only as "Reserved")?
I get it when doing an .AddNew on either a Table or Dynset recordset object to an Access 2.0 Database from Visual Basic 3.0.  Also, at this point the database becomes corrupted and must be recovered.

Have you insallled the Access 2 service pack, which updates the Jet DLL from 2.0 to 2.5.

Not all error messages are available to VB3 when using access 2. These are then labelled 3000.

The service pack may clear some of these error messages.

The corruption problems should be prevented once the service pack is installed. It is available from Microsoft online.

Also, if you try to run equivalent code or query from the Access 2 environment, you may see more clearly what the error message is.

Good instructions about the service pack.  However, installing it changed nothing.  It all boiled down to recompacting the database, and that has apparently fixed it.  I've seen error messages that indicate to do this specifically, but with a 3000 error I didn't have a clue.
