I tried to put in a code that makes datagrid's work.

but the message popup.
Couldn't find installable ISAM.

What does that mean?

the original code is as followes.

Private Sub Form_Load()
    Adodc1.ConnectionString = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.3.51; datasource=c:\biblio.mdb"
    Adodc1.CommandType = adCmdTable
    Adodc1.RecordSource = "titles"

End Sub
