Hi, What i am trying to achieve is to be able to get a microsoft database schema based only on database and its location. The purpose of this application is to be able to allow the user to spesify a database as shown underneath and based on this information to be able to get a list of available tables that are in the database. unfortunately i get run time errors.
my code is as follows:

    Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click

   
        Dim connString As String = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=C:\\vb.mdb"
        Dim myConnection As OleDbConnection = New OleDbConnection()

        myConnection.ConnectionString = connString

        ' create a data adapter
        ' ' Dim da As OleDbDataAdapter = New OleDbDataAdapter("Select * from person", myConnection)

 1*       TextBox1.Text = myConnection.GetSchema().ToString
 End Sub
 Whenever i run the application i get the following error: "Invalid operation. The connection is closed at position 1*."

Does anyone know how to get a schema, the solution doesn't have to be based on the above code , Thanks in advance!

The error stated that the connection is closed. Did you try opening the connection first?

Myconnection.Open
TextBox1.Text = myConnection.GetSchema().ToString
MyConnection.Close
