here is a link about ADO and DA0 and access2000
 To add these references in Visual Basic:

Open a project.
From the Project menu select References…
From the list, select "Microsoft ActiveX Data Objects 2.1 Library."
From the list, select "Microsoft ADO Ext. 2.1 for DDL and Security."
From the list, select "Microsoft Jet and Replication Objects 2.1 Library."
Click OK.

they explained that the preferred way is  to ADO and do this:


Dim cnn As New ADODB.Connection
cnn.Open "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=C:\Nwind.mdb;"

if you are using both, they both have to be defined explicitly


hope this helps :)
