What are you using: DAO or ADO?

If you use DAO, you need to reference DAO 3.6 (instead of 3.5x).

VB6 and Access 2000 are not compatible (by default)..you have to download some updates so that VB6 will recognise the Access 2000 DB format...first upgrade your VB6 to SP3...

get VB6SP3 at this adderss:

I upgraded VB with SP3 and downloaded My Yet Engine. I stated DAO 3.6 in the reference list, then I added Data control and pointed to Access 2000 Database. I failed (unrecognized data ...). Then I tried to establish data link through Data control manually and I failed (Unrecognized...).

Is there another way?

Please help! It seems that it worked for gyzbo ... what am I doing wrong?

In your Form_Load event, put the following code:

Private Sub Form_Load()
Dim db As Database
Set db = DBEngine.OpenDatabase("c:\yourfile.mdb")
Set Data1.Recordset = db.OpenRecordset(tablename or SQL Statement)
End Sub

Set the datasource of your bound controls to data1. You must then manually type in the datafield name, you cannot use the dropdown. You will have to bind your controls manually to the data control using the field names and add some code to make it work with DAO and MS Access 2000. This should work.
