Problem using DeviceToDesktop with VB6

Hi

I've been using the DeviceToDesktop and DesktopToDevice api within vb6. Desktop to device works perfectly.

Unfortunately, DeviceToDesktop returns an error when I call it as follows :

lngRet = DEVICETODESKTOP(Desk.Text, "", False, True, Mob.Text)

The error I get is -2146824447. Both text boxes are filled in, with the correct path of an Access 2000 db and a pocket access db.

Anyone have any ideas why it could be failing?

Thanks

Jeremy

Note:

Pocket Access Databases have the extension .cdb
Pocket SQL Databases have the extension .sdf

So when you reference them on the device make sure you use this extension rather than the desktop extensions.
