Chizl,

Try the following:

DBEngine.RegisterDatabase "MyDSN", "Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)", True, "DBQ=c:\test.mdb;"

We tried that, but there is more too it for what we are doing..   We found a sollution though.    We are using WISE installation software.   We just copied the registry for HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\ODBC\ with the Access 97 and HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ODBC\  with the Access 97 portion into our Setup and it works perfectly..  So I'm going to go ahead and give you the points for just a quick response.    :)  

Your Welcome..
