Use OpenRecordset for Select statements, for Insert, Update, and Delete try using Execute, ie.

Set rsInvoice = db.Execute("DELETE * FROM Invoice")


CurrentDb.Execute("DELETE * FROM Invoice")

Shouldn't have an error with that one.

From the VB help file for the OpenRecordset method, regarding the "Source" parameter:

A String specifying the source of the records for the new Recordset. The source can be a table name, a query name, or
an SQL statement that returns records. For table-type Recordset objects in Microsoft Jet databases, the source can only
be a table name          ^^^^^^^^^^
DELETE queries are action queries.  The most you can hope to return is the number of rows affected.  If you need to clear the table, use this code instead:

CurrentDB.Execute "DELETE * FROM Invoice"
