Workspace

Hi

Why the first two lines in the following code cause error in my PC?
Since the third line in the following code can work, why we need to set workspace?
What about workspace(1) and workspace(2)?

set NewWs = DBEngine.WorkSpace(0)
set NewDB = NewWs.OpenDatabase("thefile.mdb", dbLengGeneral)

set NewDB = OpenDatabase("thefile.mdb", dbLengGeneral)

victorlong,
your error probable in WorkSpace(0). It should be workspaces(0).

You don't have to specify workspace.

Hi Dalin.

You are right.

But what is a workspace in VB?

I also tried
set NewWs = DBEngine.WorkSpaces(1)
and got error :-(

Cheers.

victorlong,
You may search for Workspace object (DAO) from the Online help to see what iit is or what it does.

When You first refers to workspace, the jetengine automatically creats workspaces(0).
If you want to use other work spaces, you need to create it by use the CreatWorkspace method then then appending to the collection.

Hope I made myself clear. If you have any additional questions, feel free to ask. You can email me Dalin_N@mailExcite.Com
