Here is my code:

Dim db3 As Database
Dim rsttemp As RecordSet
Set db3 = CurrentDb()
Set rsttemp = db3.OpenRecordset("tblTempArchPart")

On the set rsttemp line I get the following error:
Run time error '13'
type mismatch

I have tried including a second parameter such as dbOpenDynaset or dbOpenTable - neither makes a differenc.

The table is not a linked table - it has one record in it.
I have the Microsoft DAO 3.6 object library as one of the references.

Any ideas????

Try this:
Dim db3 As DAO.Database
Dim rsttemp As DAO.RecordSet

The problems is that you might have other references that have a Recordset type, which could be in the list before the DAO.records.

If this is happening with Access 2000, the problem arises because the DEFAULT data access technology for Access 2000 is ADO, but the default type when you Dim ...as Database is DAO  Thus, you get a DAO recordset from the OpenRecordset method of the Database object, but the Dim ... as Recordset has declared the Recordset object as an ADO-type recordset, hence the Type mismatch.  as Angelll suggested, you can resolve the issue by EXPLICITLY declaring the Database and Recordset objects as DAO.

"DAO." was the problem --- thanks! Appreciate Arthur's more definitive explanation -- but will accept angel's answer because it worked and it was posted 1st. Thanks again!
