Hi Experts,

This one is tough because i don't have access to any of the code on the program that's causing this issue.  It's a really old visual basic program and i'm getting a lot of errors.  It runs fine on Windows 98 and Windows XP, but on my Vista computer, it's not working properly.  Can you tell me what might be causing the error "Multiple step OLE DB operation generated errors. Check each OLE DB status value if available. No work was done."

Thanks :-)
Laura

Sorry it took me so long to answer.  You're right, Gary, it can be any combination of things.  I followed the suggestions of the article and I was able to get the program to work.  Thanks :-)
