Hi tom:
To add ADO, you need to add it as a reference
Project -> References, Microsoft Activex Data Objects X.X Library (There might be more than one. Choose one of them)

Alternatively, you can add the ADODC control:

Project -> Components, Microsoft ADO Data Control X.X

Hi, tom.

Following either method Dabas mentioned will work.  There is no need to press the "Apply" button (in the Project/Components dialog); it seems you're going to Project/Components/Controls tab, hitting the "Browse" button, finding the msado15.dll file and pressing "Apply", which won't work.  You can use the browse method only from the Project/References dialog box.
