1) make sure that you have the libraries included in your project

under vb6 go to tools -> reference -> add ms ado 2.5 (or higher) and ms vb for applications extensibility

2) create the database object and recordset object

Dim conn As New ADODB.Connection
Dim rcd As New ADODB.Recordset

3) open the connection

conn.ConnectionString = "Provider=Microsoft.JET.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=D:\path\file.mdb;"
conn.Open()

4) execute the query
rcd.execute ("YourQueryName")
