I'm running VB6 SP5 Full Install, and trying to open some DB tables (Access 2000) with methods such "OpenDatabase", but I get an error of "Unidentified Data Base Type" or something like that. What Patch/Pack/Driver/File/Library/JET Version or whatever must I install in order to make it work with A2000, and where can I find it. (I'm not using Data nor ADO objects which I know already came with such an option, I'm intended to use code only). I'll thank a lot the help that you may give me.

Hi pire,

OpenDatabase is available for DAO:

Example:

Dim db As DAO.Database
        Dim dbEngine As New DAO.dbEngine
        Set db = dbEngine.OpenDatabase(DBPath)
.
.

Are you going to use ADO to connect to the Access Database?

For ADO:

Example:

Dim myConn As New ADODB.Connection
Dim rs As New ADODB.Recordset

.
.
myConn.ConnectionString = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=C:\abc.mdb;Persist Security Info=False"
    myConn.Open
   
    rs.Open "Select Max(id) As MaxID from [Table]", myConn, 1, 3
    MaxPLID = rs.Fields!MaxID
    rs.Close
.
.
