For maintaining an existing project I need to place a new simple data-control. But by placing the control on any placeholder (form or whatever) since short time I get always the message "olb not found". Formerly placed datacontrols works fine. Same happens if I try it on a  new opened project. Even a complete reinstalling VB6 and SP5 does not help. Which registry-key belongs to that problem ? Which olb is missing ? I use VB6, SP5 under W2000 professional.
Thanks a lot for help

I also had read somewhere, that MDAC newer versions, does not include some of the necessary components of DAO. We also, faced a problem before, when handling with DAO.

You could search for MDAC in microsoft.com and find the info about it.

hope it helps.

Check out http://www.microsoft.com/data/download_Jet4SP3.htm for the Jet Drivers etc that don't get installed with later versions of MDAC.
