I am trying to open a recordset right after opening a connection. I keep getting the error message:

  "The connection cannot be used to perform this operation. It is either closed or invalid in this context.

Here is my code.

Public Function OpenDBConnection() As Boolean
    Dim strConnectString As String
   
    On Error GoTo ErrProc
   
    strConnectString = "Driver={Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)};Dbq=" & App.Path & "\PT.mdb;Exclusive=1;Uid=admin;Pwd="
   
    If cn.State = 0 Then
        cn.Open strConnectString
        OpenDBConnection = True
    Else
        cn.Close
        cn.Open
        OpenDBConnection = True
    End If
   
    Exit Function
   
ErrProc:
    MsgBox Err & ": " & Error
End Function
'
'
'
Private Sub LoadEmployees()
    Dim rs As New ADODB.Recordset
   
    On Error GoTo ErrProc
   
    If OpenDBConnection Then
        rs.Open "tblEmployee", cn, adOpenKeyset, adLockReadOnly   <<<<<<<<<< ERROR MESSAGE >>>>>>>>>>
   
        If rs.RecordCount > 0 Then
            Do While Not rs.EOF
                cmbEmployee.AddItem rs!empLastName & ", " & rs!empFirstname
                rs.MoveNext
            Loop
        End If
    End If
   
    Exit Sub

ErrProc:
    MsgBox Err & ": " & Error
End Sub


I know the connection is open but I don't know why I can't open the recordset.
