You're mixing things ...

DAO is the old method and is mentionned as Microsoft Jet, this is in version 4 by now.

ADO is the new way to do things, and is in version 2.7 by now (recently)

Download MDAC 2.7 from the link above, and install it.

Access 2000 is only supported in Jet 4, which comes with the new ADO.  Or you can download it, from .... the url.

Microsoft recently made a tool for this.
Go to their site, on ... http://www.microsoft.com/data/download.htm#CCinfo

and see if this tool is sufficient ....

I have already downloaded and run the MDAC Microsoft data access component utility, but I do not understand what it is telling me!

It tells you what you have installed and what versions of it !!


It gives you a complete overview of all the versions of drivers you have installed (both ODBC and OLEDB).  It gives you all the files, ...

and you can use it to check if a certain version of MDAC is there.

I think there's even a help file  ;-))

Apparently I need DAO 2.6.
I've looked, checked the help and used the search, nothing with "DAO" is listed.  I don't doubt I'm looking for the wrong thing.

From another Question I was told if I have DAO 2.6 my problems would be over !

PS
What is DOA 2.6 ?

I'm trying to read an Access2000 table with ASP

Ok , the fogs lifting, been to Microsoft they say:

This Web release is the first release of Microsoft Data Access Components (MDAC) 2.7 RTM. This download installs the same version of the MDAC components that are installed Windows XP

I'm using windows XP, should I download and install (MDAC) 2.7 RTM anyway ?

It's lifting further.  I downloaded the utility, but was running completely the wrong thing, sorry about that.
I am already running MDAC 2.7 RTM

Under OLEDB I have Microsoft Jet 4.0 OLE BD provider

So it looks like I have everything I need, only it doesn't work.

To save confusion, I'm closing this thread and am going to continue trying to fix the problem at
