Hi Experts,

I have the following VBA. The script works fine in Access 2003 but when I run it in Access 2007 I get a runtime error of 3845. Please see attached picture. How can I solve this problem?

Thanks
'**Establish link to table in 'load region'
        Set dbd = OpenDatabase(DestPathIs & "\" & strDatabase)
        For Each td In dbd.TableDefs
            If Left(td.Name, 4) <> "msys" And Left(td.Name, 1) <> "~" _
                And InStr(td.Name, "ImportErrors") = 0 Then
                DoCmd.TransferDatabase acLink, "Microsoft Access", DestPathIs & "\" & strDatabase, acTable, td.Name, td.Name
            End If
        Next

Open in new window
