Private strConn As String = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=" & _ "C:\Documents and Settings\reid\Desktop\BSN Home.mdb;"

ryancys' correct. The underscore is used when splitting code over multiple lines. If all the code is on the one line, the underscroe is not needed.

try using dim instead of private inside subproceedures.  Private can be used at the class, form or module levels, but not at the subroutine level
