1.You must be setup ODBC in control panel of windows system which must set DSN to identify your database
2.In VB Please add MS Remote data object (RDO)  in menu project -> component.

You should be connect database by ODBC Which ODBC will set type of database (Access or SQL etc) and connection to database on server. Then in VB application you use RDO object  to connect ODBC.
