Hi

I'm facing a problem, I can't connect a CR2008 Report to an Access 2007 Database in an application written with VB 2008.
It works with an .mdb database but not with a .accdb database, and I need an accdb!!!!

Could you please, help me?

Here is my code:

report1.FileName = PathToReports + "\Reports\RPT1.rpt"
report1.Database.Tables(0).Location = PathToDB & "\Database files\myDB.mdb" ==> If I specify the accdb, it doesn't work
report1.VerifyDatabase()

Thanks

It is easier to create a dataset in your vb apllication from your access database and then work with the full dataset in your Crystal report ....the only thing you have to do then is to laod the report ...

What version of Crystal?
Please check the full version in HELP --> ABOUT CRYSTAL

Most versions don't work with Office 2007.  Full support is added with CR2010.  There may also be a service pack that adds support to earlier versions like CR2008 and CR XI R2.

Finally, I keep on using a mdb. I had a problem with the oledb jet 4.0, and I changed it to oledb 12.0 and my application is working now.
I think I'll be back later with my issue, now I don't have a lot of time to spend on it.

Thank you all.
