This might mean that you have two databases, and are accessing the wrong one, which is missing the StaffAccountsDB table.

First a question:  Why use ADO vs. ADO.NET?

Then a suggestion:  Try using ADOX, setup a Catalog, and examine the Tables property to see if the table exists.

Is this a Windows form project in VB.NET?  Does the user have access to the tables?
