Hi,
I am working on upgrading Access from 2003 to 2010. The steps I followed are,
 Open the Access 2010
 Import the old 2003 database
 Run the new database application.
I am getting error 'Class does not support automation or does not support expected interface' and it is coming for the below code,

Application.CurrentProject.AccessConnection.Execute ("DELETE FROM tblImportStatus")

If I change the code to - DoCmd.RunSQL ("DELETE FROM tblImportStatus")
It is working fine.
I have few other instances where I am getting same error,
Application.CurrentProject.AccessConnection.Execute ("INSERT INTO tblImportStatus(FileName,FilePath,ImportStatus) " & _
                    "Values('" & objFile.Name & "','" & objFile.Path & "','SUCCESS')")

Set cmd.ActiveConnection = Application.CurrentProject.AccessConnection

To fix this do I need to add any references ?
As of now I added few references and the attachment have those details,

Sounds like you have a problem with ADO.   I cannot see from your attached doc the full references, so I do not know if you have some duplicated ones or not.

The other issue is that support for ADPs was dropped, and things may be working a bit differently now.  You should be aware of the differences between  .Connection and .AccessConnection.  Note in this article:

Difference Between Connection and AccessConnection Properties
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/281784

  That there are times when you should not be using .AccessConnection as the OLEDB10 class lib does not support all operations.  I believe this is what you are bumping into.  Try changing your code to .Connection

Better yet, change your SQL execution to use dbEngine(0)(0).Execute

Example:
dbEngine(0)(0).Execute "DELETE FROM tblImportStatus"

Open in new window

Hi,
I tried to use Connection instead of AccessConnection but got error "Class not registered"

Thanks,
Raj

Raj,

  I am not sure what the problem is then.  :(

  You might want to uncheck everything but the main ADO reference and then try.  I could not tell from your screen shot exactly what was being loaded.

  You may not need all the references currently checked.

  Not positive that will get your problem solved though.

Thank you for you help, it seems the issue is with drivers. I moved to another system and these are working fine.
