Your connection string?
Try repairing your mdb file.

Look at this link:
http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q238/4/01.ASP

If you are using DAO, try this:
Select Project/References and check the Microsoft DAO 3.6, and remove the previous Microsoft DAO references.

Use "Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0", in your connection string, if you are using ADO.

Cheers.

Hi, are you using Data Control in your application? Bcos Data Control only support Access 97 and lower version of Access Database.

Hi javier_savi0la,
Don't worry, this is very simple. Open the database again in Access2000.  Then select Tools. Select Database Utilities /Convert Database/To Prior Access Database. Give a new name to the database. Now u rename the your current database(access2000). Rename the converted database to your old DB name and put in correct path. It will work
Regards
Sridhar

To use Access 2000 with VB6, upgrade Jet to 4.0 sp5.
Then you have full support of the new format.

javier, The solution should work for you, but it only works with the prior database. You have Access 2000 and then why should you use a previous version Access format, while you have an option to use the new features of Access 2000.

You could use the new Jet Engine or DAO version for accessing the Access 2000, as the Microsoft link, I had already provided states. It specifically points out the error you had mentioned, "Unrecognized Database format" or whatever. It does not matter the points, its alright, but you could try the Access 2000 format itself, it is like, I don't know how to use the new version, so, let me stick to the older version, no? Am I right?

Cheers.
