Microsoft Dao 3.6 Object Library ,Microsoft ActiveX Data Object 2.8 Library Reference Issues

Posted on 2010-11-30
Last Modified: 2012-05-10
In my Visual Basic Project, I have added the references,

1.      Microsoft Dao 3.6 Object Library
2.      Microsoft ActiveX Data Object 2.8 Library – newly added reference and the below piece of code:

I am using MS Office 2000

    Const DataProvider As String = "PROVIDER=MSDataShape;Data PROVIDER=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;"
    Dim adoPrimaryRS As Recordset
    Dim db      As ADODB.Connection

    'Execute the query.
     Set adoPrimaryRS = New ADODB.Recordset
    src = sql()
    ADODB.adoPrimaryRS.Open src, db, adOpenDynamic, adLockOptimistic

Error - adoPrimaryRS - Method or Data memebr not found.

If I change the order of the reference, then the above code is working. but the existing code is not working.

It seems both  above reference have conflict.

You are getting the Error - adoPrimaryRS - Method or Data memebr not found, beacuse you are adding ADODB to your adoPromaryRS object in this line

  ADODB.adoPrimaryRS.Open src, db, adOpenDynamic, adLockOptimistic

You should use it like this

adoPrimaryRS.Open src, db, adOpenDynamic, adLockOptimistic

now the error become,
.Open method  or data memebr not found.

I couldn't find the method Open after putting the ".".

if I change  reference order like

1.  Microsoft ActiveX Data Object 2.8 Library
2. Microsoft Dao 3.6 Object Library

adoPrimaryRS.Open src, db, adOpenDynamic, adLockOptimistic

the above  code works

Ok, you do not need to change the reference order, just add ADODB  to your object declaration like this

Dim adoPrimaryRS As ADODB.Recordset

This happend because DAO and ADO both have a Recordset type object, so you have to specify wich one you are trying to use.
