Here the code:

Dim conDB As New ADODB.Connection
Dim strCnn  As String

 strCnn = "DSN=visits;UID=visit;PWD=visit;DBQ=kvilot;DBA=W;APA=T;FEN=T;QTO=T;FRC=10;FDL=10;LOB=T;RST=T;FRL=F;PFC=10;TLO=0;"
 conDB.Open strCnn

Unless you really need a DSN, don't use them. Better use the OLE DB providers connection strings like in the link I have provided.

Remove DBQ from your connection string.  It's already defined in the DSN.
