Creating VB6 Frond end with Access 2000 Back End database

This question may require some more points, but I don't have enough points, being new to this group.

I am new to VB6 and am following "Teach Yourself Database
Programming with Visual Basic 6" to create a form to
retrieve data from A2k Database. The error message I
get is "Unrecognized Database format".  I also changed
the reference to MS Data Object 3.6 also, but could not
figure out the problem.

Per the book I am trying to create the following
Public Subs:
    OpenDB   (Opens the DB)
    BindControls (to bind the fields on form to db fields)

I'd really appreciate if someone send my a small sample
project or give me step-wise directions to fix this
problem.

TIA

you need sp4 for vb6

for datacontrol you need to set connect to Access 2000;

for dao

p.s. dao is dead end you should use ado.

Your Data Access THINKS you are using an Access 97 database.  How are you actually opening the database?  Show the code and then we can tell you what needs to be changed to use the Access 2000 dtabase.

Open your database with your access application, then go to database tools, change the database format to 97 database format. Then your stuff will work without problem,
Good Luck,

satj2000....that seems a bit extreme.  If Payal simply uses the correct version of DAO in his/her references, then there should be no problem opeing an Access 2000 MDB from VB 6.
