 Not sure I understand the question or why your asking it, but I will comment that ODBC is seperate from Access, so there is no compairison to Access versions.

<<OLEDB9>>

 OLEDB (which allows you to use ADO) is a seperate standard and there is no compairison.

Note this is in the wiki page:

" As of 2006[update], Microsoft ships its own ODBC with every supported version of Windows: compare Microsoft Data Access Components. "

  So as long as your using an OS supported after 2006, your have the correct componets.  If for some reason you want to get the most up to date copy, you can get them here:

Note that the componets for JET are seperate.

ok- thanks for clarifying that.

regards to OLEDB, the version of msjetoledb40.dll is 4.0.9502.0 does that mean anything to finding if it is close to OLEDB9?

i am troubleshooting a system and need to make sure it is oledb9., it is win os 2003- i believe it should be under the category of "OS supported after 2006"

  I am not sure where you are getting this reference to OLEDB9 from.

  The OLE DB provider for JET that you have (4.0.9502.0), would be the last one available for JET.

  When you talk about OLE DB, your talking about a provider (a driver) that is written for each different database.   JET has one, SQL Server has one, Oracle has one, etc.   All of those are at different version levels and do not compare to one another.

  OLEDB9 may be a reference to the OLE provider for Oracle version 9.

  Exactly what is it you are trying to troubleshoot?
