Closing Access97  Tables

When you exit a complied VB5 app does VB automatically close the DB and all of its open tables and recordsets? It is my understanding that everything is closed and cleaned-up automatically. If this is not true what is the safest method to close an app that uses several Access97 databases?
Thanks

Vb5 do closes all db at the end but you never know where
the next microsoft bug will occur - i always close my db with several metodes like : data1.Recordset.Close
and data1.refresh

try looking in recordset help - there are several ways - and they all good for multi database operations

Do not Plan on depending on other application to close your db
remmember - a db is very important to a program and system
handle it yourself !!

Exiting the application close all database.  But it is always a good idea to close database before exiting a program.

dim db as database
set db = opendatabase("....")


close.db


Don'T forget you have to close all object before closing the database, like recordset.

Hope this help
