Because you did not add reference to the library you want to use.
Goto Project->References and then check the DAO or RDO whichever u want to use.
That will certainly work.

Since u are using recordset u probably want to use DAO.
If u don't want compatibility with previous versions of JET engines then u should choose MicroSoft DAO 3.5 Object Library.
This will solve it.
