Err 3170: Couldn't find installable ISAM ?

Hi,
Is there a solution to above error ?

I tried Rs= Db.OpenRecordset("filename.dbf",....,"FoxPro 2.5;"), and it uses ISAM drivers to access external FP2.5 table.

The Help says the Registry automatically create the drivers location during installation. However my VB5.0 is installed in D:\ drive, is that the cause ?

Thanks,
Collin

Don't write filname .dbf. Write your path. Like this
 Set dbCli = .OpenDatabase(App.Path, True, False, "dBASE IV")
Set rstCli = dbCli.OpenRecordset("CLIENTS", dbOpenTable)

Your answer is genius.
Do you know in this case, whether i can use .MoveFirst, .MoveNext, .Recordcount etc. (recordset commands) ? it seems that i cannot move record pointer in a selected external table.

Thanks,
Collin
