Hi. I am running the following code on two machines. On the machine that has Access it runs fine, but on the machine that doesn't have Access I get the error "Not a valid bookmark". Access was just copied as a .accdb file onto the machine that doesn't have MS Access. It has worked well for a year and suddenly this error

         Dim sSQL As String
            sSQL = "SELECT Info FROM Transactions WHERE TransactionID = " & sString & ""
            If My.Settings.Setting_CompanyID <> "" And My.Settings.Setting_CompanyID <> Nothing Then
                sSQL = sSQL & " And Co_ID = " & My.Settings.Setting_CompanyID
            End If

                Dim connection As New OleDbConnection(My.Settings.CS_Setting)
                Dim cmd As New OleDbCommand(sSQL, connection)
                connection.Open()
                Get_Info_Field = cmd.ExecuteScalar().ToString
                connection.Close()

Are you sure the error is in this block? Is it the ExecuteScalar line that throws the error?

Its hard to tell as the error only has a compiled version of my app on. The database looks like it was corrupt so I repaired it and still the error. The machine causing the errors has not got MS Access on and has a .accdb version instead of .accde (mess up by our install guy). Could this be the problem?

Not sure if that's the issue because never seen that sort of error with that type of code.
