DAO360 and DAO350? Both needed?
Posted on 2000-02-18
Okay heres the problem i just discovered yesterday. I have a program that uses a Access Database. Well the problem is this. It used to use dao350 with Visual 5 well we upgraded to Visual 6 and now heres the quarky part. Dao350 is used to access the database and when it creates the database it uses dao360. I thought 360 was the replacement for dao350. I can not figure out how to make the program quit using 350 and i would hate like hell to send 350 and 360 in my distributions because thats over 1 meg vs 540k.
Is there a way to make it use strictly either of them instead of both of them? If not, what was MS reasoning for making two data access object files? To make your apps bigger / Part of the conspiracy or what. Kinda been popping my bubble on this one. I have looked everywhere and no one talks about 360. This is supposed to be the replacement right? If i rename 350 to something else the program wont run. If i rename 360 the program doesnt recognize the db and when it trys to create a new one it crashes.
Thanks in advance
