I have designed a simple little VB form with a datacontrol on it.  This DataControl is then connected with the following settings:
Connect:  Paradox 4.x
Default Type: UseJet
When I try and link this datacontrol to a text box, I get an error message
Incorrect Collating Sequence.
I can connect a Paradox 3.5 table in the same fashion, with no problems.  I am sure it has something to do with how my Paradox 4.0 is setup compared to my Paradox 3.5?  Any suggestions.

Hello davb,

This sounds regional/language (sorting) setting problem. See more information and resolution from these MS KB articles:

I have compared the Paradox 3.5 table with the Paradox 4.0 table and have found that both are sorted the same way, and both have most of the same settings.  The Paradox 3.5 table will work no problems, but the Paradox 4.0 table will not.

You could try changing the registry collating order setting. Copy/paste these to own text files and double click the file to change the settings.

reg1.reg:
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
REGEDIT4

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Jet\3.5\Engines\Paradox]
"CollatingSequence"="Ascii"

reg2.reg:
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
REGEDIT4

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Jet\3.5\Engines\Paradox]
"CollatingSequence"="International"
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Note that you need to re-start your computer before the change take effect.
