You don't have a reference to the ADO library set do you?

No, I don't.  I have a reference to DAO 3.51.  What should I have?

Thanks,

Is Your AD Toolbox Looking More Like a Toybox?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

U should have DAO reference, you are correct.

Try

Option Explicit
Dim dbFreight As DAO.Database
Dim rsRateTable As DAO.Recordset

Private Sub Form_Load()


Set dbFreight = DBEngine.Workspaces(0).OpenDatabase _
etc...


I got you code to work,  which of the lines is the error on?

Hit F2 & search for 'Recordset', you've probably got some other sort of recordset - but the
..as DAO.Recordset
prefix will sort it out.
