... just before you posted all thousands of your coding - that's not what I meant. Normally you can start debugging your program and some particular line will through and exception. So, we'd be interested in a code snippet relevant to the part that is throuwing this exception.

I always ask why people use ODBC vs. the OleDb client, and I never get any good answers.

To my understanding there is not really reason to use ODBC for MS Access, but some other stuff, like MySQL can make sense as their ODBC driver should be specifically designed to process MySQL stuff - some performance gain. Whether there is any benefit or not, I can't say (and even don't know how one would test performance of one over another)

Right, I understand for databases that don't have OleDb or native .NET providers, but MySql has .NET providers, and so does SQL Server and Access.  So, why use an inefficient, quirky interface when a better one is available?
