Could you paste in the compilation errors so we can see what they are?

A little more detail would help us to help you :)

in my .cpp file I typed
#import "D:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\Msacc9.olb" no_namespace

and the following are the errors

I am using MS Access through #import compiler directive (no MFC support at all, VC 50)
In the following sample, I have written a simple stand alone function for counting the number of records in a specified table.



#import     <dao350.dll> rename("EOF","EOFdao") //for DAO interfaces

#import   <comdef.h>
#include  <stdio.h>

void main()
{
    HRESULT hr=NOERROR;
    _bstr_t bstrDbName ="c:\\temp\\MyDB.mdb";

    DAO::_DBEnginePtr iDbEngine;
    //this is the DAO database engine object

    DAO::DatabasePtr iDbs;

    hr=
    iDbEngine.CreateInstance(L"DAO.DBEngine.35");
    //check for errors

    hr=
    iDbEngine->raw_OpenDatabase(
                    bstrDbName,
                    vtMissing,
                    vtMissing,
                    vtMissing,
                    &iDbs);
    //check for errors

   //use iDbs for querying the DB


//count the records in some valid table
   long nCount =0;
   char lpsTableName[200] = "Students";

   hr=
   _count_records  (iDbs,lpsTableName,&nCount);
   //check hr for errors

   printf("no of records in table %s=" ,lpsTableName,nCount);

}




HRESULT _count_records(
                        DAO::DatabasePtr objDb ,
                    const char* lpcstrTableName,
                        long *nCount
                        )
    /*
    counts the total no of records in the given table     */
    {

    HRESULT hr=NOERROR;
    DAO::RecordsetPtr objRecSet;
    char lpsQuery[512]="";
    _bstr_t bstrQuery;
    long count=0;

    *nCount=0;
    sprintf(
            lpsQuery,
            "select * from %s ",
            lpcstrTableName
            );
    bstrQuery=lpsQuery;
    hr=objDb->raw_OpenRecordset(
                            bstrQuery,
                            vtMissing,
                            vtMissing,
                            vtMissing,
                            &objRecSet);
    //check hr for errors

    while(objRecSet->GetEOFdao() != VARIANT_TRUE)
        {
        count++;
        objRecSet->MoveNext();
        }

    *nCount = count;
wrapup:
    return hr;
}

Thanks for what you have posted, I need to use MS access object model and not DAO, for example using MS Access object model you can create forms, run wizards and so, I succeeded in VB, but not in VC

when you look at the top of the .tlh file you will see a section called 'Cross-referenced type libraries:' it was these you were missing

try the following:

(unfortunatly you will need to use namespaces as there is too much conflict otherwise)

Note they may be different on you machine so be prepared to look around :)

#import "D:\Program Files\Common Files\System\Ado\msado15.dll" rename("EOF","EOFmsa")
#import "D:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\DAO\DAO360.DLL" rename("EOF","EOFdao")
#import "D:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\MSO9.DLL"
#import "D:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\VBA\VBA6\VBE6EXT.OLB"
//#import "D:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\DAO\dao350.dll" no_namespace rename("EOF","EOFdao") //for DAO interfaces

#import "D:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\Msacc9.olb"
