What is a Workspace in Visual Basic 6 ?

I am having to maintain some Visual Basic 6 code. Unfortunately I have to learn it on the job.
I am seeing a Visual Basic statement that I don't understand. Here is the code:

Dim wsCoyon As Workspace

What is going on here? Can someone help me to understand?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

It is probably a DAO Workspace, which manages a connection session to a database. There should be a refernce to the Microsoft DAO object library.

Dim is used to allocate storage space for a variable, so storage space is being set up for the variable wsCoyon as a workspace for Visual Basic code. I'd really recommend that you find a good book to learn from. I barely remember VB and it's been a couple years away from a college course in VB.net.

Hi TIm,
any good recommendations on a book. I already have one and it does not talk about work spaces.
