Three Methods available :
1. Create a recordset from a SQL Statement with a where clause which specifies your search criteria
2. Create a recordset of all the necessary data and search through the recordset using the FindFirst, FindNext, FindPrevious and FindLast Methods
3. Create a table object and use the Seek method (the table must have and index to do this)

Demo code of the above is available in the VB3 help file

Im not sure , if  VB3  support object Recordset and
constant dbOpenDynaset.  (maybe it's from VB4 or VB5)
Try :
Dim rs as Dynaset
set rs = db.CreateDynaset("Select * from log")

You can try creating a recordset! Its been a while since I used VB3, but I a am sure you can do this.

Alternatively, try creating a snapshot. You can even create a Query in Access 2 with your search critiera and create a snapshot of it from VB3 by just specifying the querydef - this is certainly possible. If you can wait for a while I will try to look for some code that demonstrates this (it should all be in the VB3 Help File)
