If you installed Access2000, you should have the new Jet4 installed, so you can use ADO in order to open a connection with the database as follows:

Dim MyDB As ADODB.Connection
Set MyDB = New ADODB.Connection
MyDB.Open "ODBC;DBQ=filename.mdb;Driver={Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)};DriverId=281;FIL=MS"

Just add a reference to the ADO 2.1

Goodluck.
