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

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.
