Greetings,

I have a two simple lines of code

Sub thing()
    Dim db As DATABASE
    Dim qry As queryDef
   
End Sub

Access2000 doesn't recognize The Database object or the QueryDef object.

I get the error: "User-defined type not defined" Is there a certain library or option that I don't have selected? Very confused and frustrated....

Probably:
   Dim db As dao.DATABASE
   Dim qry As dao.queryDef
will work.

Just go in the code "mode" to Tools/References to see what modules are present. Make sure at least the Microsoft DAO ... Object library is present and "checked".

yes it sounds like the ADO Library id being referenced rather than the DAO Library

Yes it was just a reference to the DAO 3.6 that was not checked... how annoying. Thanks all!

It will even be more annoying when you move your application to a machine with DAO 3.5
In such a case you'll need to change the reference, otherwise the strangest error's can occur...

But glad I could help, success with your aplication.
