I am assuming here that Private withevents etc is declared class scope and set rsSample etc is inside a function somewhere?
I also assume its not in a module? (if any of this is not corrrect or you are not sure please let me know)

First check the version of MDAC.  Open regedit and check HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\DataAccess\Version
If you don't have that key or the latest version you may want to download it from MS.  2.8 is currently the latest I think.(http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=6c050fe3-c795-4b7d-b037-185d0506396c&DisplayLang=en)
Check the reference in VB.  Menu "Project - References".
You need to have "Microsoft ActiveX Data Objects 2.6 Library" checked.  (Or whatever version you have installed)
Also if you have more than one project in a group file then you need to rerence each project that requires access to the objects.

Just curious but does the error message still happen if you remove withevents.
