Hi there

To create an ADO DSN-less connection you must specify in your ADODB.Connection object the string supplied as your datasource for the object.

For example:

dim adoconn as adodb.connection

adoConn.ConnectionString = "driver={Visual FoxPro Database}; datasource=C:\MyDir;"

Hope this works for you...
