I need help. Why the type mismatch.
I copied the code from another of my programs and there is no error in the other program. tbl.name is a string.


Dim dbmath As Database
Dim rs As Recordset
Dim ws As Workspace

Set ws = DBEngine.Workspaces(0)
Set dbmath = ws.OpenDatabase(NuevaDB$ + ".mdb")
'next statement gives 'type mismatch' WHY?
Set rs = dbmath.OpenRecordset(tbl.Name, dbOpenDynaset)

Remove reference to MS ADO 2.x, or move it down to have less priority than DAO 3.x, or change declaration:
>Dim rs As Recordset
to
Dim rs As DAO.Recordset

Hi mathprof,

What DAO Library do you use?
The code works with a reference to Microsoft DAO 3.6 Object Library.

Make sure that tbl.Name contain a valid tablename.
