Another Simple Database connection

I have the following code that I swear was working. Now I get a type mismatch error. Can anyone shed some light on this..

Dim rs_test_import As New Recordset
Dim booksdb As Database

  Set booksdb = OpenDatabase("books2.mdb")
  Set rs_test_import = booksdb.OpenRecordset("test_import", dbOpenDynaset)

I am getting the type mismatch on the last line.

You don't need to use New keyword in the declaration statement of Recordset.

What is "test_import"??? Is it the table or sql?

Dear friend,
   for your problem,

1. You don't need to use New keyword in the declaration statement of Recordset.

  and one more think you have to do

2. you have to set the Reference priority  proper order. that means
Microsoft DAO 3.51 object library should come before Microsoft Active Data Objects 2.1  Library.
  for this you have to select the Project option  from the toolbar and select Reference and set it properly.

 i hope it should work.

There maybe a problem with the reference. Do you reference both ADO and DAO in your app? If so, you have to prefixed your declaration this way:

Dim rs_test_import As DAO.Recordset

if you are not using ADO then no no need to use ADO Reference
