Hi Drew_Mora,

Yes there is. You either need to use DAO (version 3.6 or higher) or ADO (version 2.1 or higher) and then the appropriate connection/recordset etc.

If you are using built-in controls such as the data control then you either need to use the ADODC control instead or install Service Pack 4 or higher for VB to upgrade the built-in controls so that they are compatible with access 2000 and upwards.

Without knowing any more information it is a little difficult to be more precise than this but it may help to get you started on solving your problem.
