DBase IV and Unexpected Error

I'm trying to connect to a dbase IV database using VB6 and the Dbase component of Microsoft's desktop database ODBC driver's - It makes the connection ok (rather there is no error message - I don't think that making a connection actually does anything) but when I try to query a table the following error occurs:

Unexpected error from external database driver (10049)


I am sure that this did not occur when I was last working on this code a few months back. I've reinstalled MS desktop ODBC to no avail.

Help me please!!!!

Can you try to use OLE DB instead of ODBC. This may help.

Please go inside DbaseIV, then use the dbase file and try to "pack" and "reindex" it, maybe the dbase file is having some problem (corrupted !!!)
good luck.
