It would normally be a case of including "Deleted=0;" in your ADO connection string. For example:

Dim cnnDBase As ADODB.Connection
Set cnnDBase = New ADODB.Connection
cnnDBase.ConnectionString = "Provider=MSDASQL.1;Persist Security Info=False;Extended Properties=CollatingSequence=ASCII;DefaultDir=C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio\VB98;Deleted=0;Driver={Microsoft dBase Driver (*.dbf)};DriverId=533;FIL=dBase 5.0;MaxBufferSize=2048;MaxScanRows=8;PageTimeout=600;SafeTransactions=0;Statistics=0;Threads=3;UID=admin;UserCommitSync=Yes;Initial Catalog=C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio\VB98

I know the query in access:
select * into test from [dBase IV;DataBase=C:\test].test.dbf.
but in the table there are not any deleted records of .DBF file.
