Getting Office Automation to work within VB6

I have a VB application the uses data from a MSAccess DB.  I have this code that works correctly.

        Set acApp = CreateObject("Access.Application")
            With acApp
                .OpenCurrentDatabase "V:\FRED\UPS_VInfo\UPS_VInfoVB.mdb"
                .DoCmd.TransferText , "UPS_Import_Raw", "UPSImport", _
                        mPathImport & mFile1, False
                .CloseCurrentDatabase
                .Quit
            End With
        Set acApp = Nothing

When I change the DoCmd.OpenQuery "qryName" the code fails with something about Office Automation failing.  The "qryName" is a simple update query.  Is there anyway to get this sort of query to work from within VB?

Appreciate assistance.

Have you tried using
CurrentDb.Execute <Query Name>, dbFailOnError
instead of the openquery command?

I'm guessing that you are not turning off the error messages, etc.

Not sure what the issue was but I converted the query to a SQL statement and use db.Execute mSQL and it worked just fine. The query I was attempting to run was an append query and was being lazy hoping the with acApp would work.  I'm sure there is additional syntax that could have been added that would have let it work.
Maybe someone can assist with what the issue is with the acApp code I show.
