I need to know if there is a way to change a text field (column) in an access2000 mdb using ado from within a vb6 program, and if so I need some help in composing the code to accomplish this.

Thanks for your help here.

you can use
currentdb.execute "alter table tableName alter column ColumnName Text(255)"  

that will set the column length to 255

Thanks capricorn1,

I am just a novice vb6  programmer.

The data base name is Acord. Its path is C:\appfolder\acord.mdb.

Was wondering what coding will  get me from that path to currentdb.execute.

Really appreciate your help.

You can't use Currentdb with ADO, but Cap1's SQL command is the statement you need to execute.

See this example -
