I used following VB6 code to run MS Access 97
ProgramWorkspace = DBEngine.CreateWorkspace("ProgramWorkspace", "ProgramUser", "federation")

After the MS Access is upgraded to 2003, this line of the code is not working any more. The Visual Basic Error message is:

Cant open database . It may not be a database that your application recognized, or the file may be corrupt.

What should it be for Access 2003?
DBEngine.SystemDB = App.Path + "\" + "system.mdw"
Set ProgramWorkspace = DBEngine.CreateWorkspace("ProgramWorkspace", "ProgramUser", "federation")

Open in new window

Have you updated all your reference libraries in your VB6 app to reflect the new version of the Access being used?

Hi Peter57r,
Thanks. It works for the system.mdw. When the code asks to access the Access database itself, I got following error:

Unrecognized database format "\\MCL-Srv1\vol1\networks\share\cmtce\tmsinfo\copy of nokia card data controller\ncdccode\current\log.mdb

Many thanks peter57r. I understand what you are saying. I tried all possiable references with different seq. At the end I decide to change my method. Instead of using the ADO or DAO to create tables and fields, I am now pre-set a MS Access template with all the structures. I will replication my sql database into this template to make the replicate database. It works find. Thanks again for your attension. Cheers
