Dim db As Database
Dim rs As DAO.Recordset

Set db = CurrentDb
Set rs = db.OpenRecordset("select somefiled from table")

do you have AccDB object library in your reference? if yes, uncheck DAO 3.6 and check accDB object library instead?

You don't use DAO 3.6 in Access 2007 or 2010. 2007 and 2010 use the new ACE engine, which requires the references you currently have set.

As pddilan suggests earlier, OpenRecordset require a valid SQL Statement or table/query name:

Set rs = db.OpenReocordset("SELECT * FROM SomeTable")

or

Set rs = db.OpenRecordset("qryGetUserNames")

However, it seems you're having trouble on the "Set db = CurrentDB". Is that correct?

You really don't need to use a variable for this. You can do this:

Set rs = Currentdb.OpenRecordset('Your SQL Statement")

If that doesn't work (and you are 100% certain that your SQL statement is valid) then you may have some issues with the installation of Access, or with one of the supporting libraries/files. You may need to do a repair or reinstall of Access or Office.

<<Compile error:
Invalid outside procedure
>>

 Your references are fine.  What you've done though is placed the statement outside of a Function or Sub Procedure.

  You cannot simply place it at the top of a module.  It must occur inside a procedure. i.e.

Public Function MyTest()

  Dim db as Database
  Set db = CurrentDB()

End function

or


Public Sub MyTest()

  Dim db as Database
  Set db = CurrentDB()

End Sub

  You've got the statement in the wrong place and it needs to be moved.

  I tell you it's amazing sometimes what you filter out when reading an error.  I've been caught like that sooo many times myself over the years it is not even funny.

Have a great day,
