hello i'm back :)
i'm trying to open a recordset, database connection.

i have a form, with a button, i press the button and go to a sub.

private Sub bt_blaat_Click()

'I tried adding
' Dim wsSessie as Workspace
' Set wsSessie.OpenDatabse(CurrentDb)
'doesnt make a difference

Dim db As Database
Dim rsRead As Recordset

Set db = CurrentDb

Set rsRead = db.OpenRecordset("tablename", dbOpenTable)
rsRead.MoveLast
rsRead.MoveFirst

end Sub

error: type mismatch

("typen komen niet overeen")

does anyone have any idea of what i'm doeing wrong?

try
Set rsRead = db.OpenRecordset("tablename", dbOpenDynaset)

I guess your table "tablename" is a linked table; for some reason Access will not open a linked table with dbopentable but will with dbOpendynaset - they do the same thing!!

'dim you recordset as DAO. Be sure to include a reference to DAO in your references.

Dim rsRead As DAO.Recordset

Tried it.."Set rsRead = db.OpenRecordset("tablename", dbOpenDynaset)"
same error
brrr i already did this once succesfull in an other program and it worked just fine :S

"tablename" is the name of the table.. it's really called "advies_recept_middel_koppel"

It's because the RECORDSET object is used by 2 different libraries: ADO and DAO.  If you don't put DAO before your declaration it'll assume you're trying to use the ADO recordset object.  Statements like OpenRecordset are not supported by ADO.

Alternatively you could have removed the ADO reference from your project.  Then Access would not have been confused.

Defining the Recordset as DAO did work for me.  One difference, however, is that I defined the OpenRecordSet statement with no dbDynaSet, dbSnapShot, etc. parameters: Set Rec_Set = CurrentDb.OpenRecordset(strQuery)
