Hi,

I have inherited a program developed in VB5 to which i need to make some changes. However, even before making any changes i attempt to compile the project file in VB5 and get the following error

Function or interface marked as restricted,
or the function uses an Automation type not supported in VB

The error occurs at the following line of code

tablename.Recordset.FindFirst

Does anyone have any idea why this might be happening and what i might do to resolve it?

Thanks in advance,
Nev.
