Connecting Access to Mysql for recordset using ADO

I am converting a database from using a MSSQL back end to a MySQL backend (first time) and am having trouble getting the ADO connection for a recordset to work. For the Access front end to MSSQL backend I am using this code:

    Dim rsItems As New ADODB.Recordset
    Dim conn As New Connection
    Set conn = New ADODB.Connection

    conn.Open "DSN=LP"
    SQL = "Select * From [Items Check] Where [Order Number]=" + Format$(Me![Order Number])
    rsItems.Open SQL, conn, adOpenStatic, adLockOptimistic
    
    If Not rsItems.EOF Then rsItems.MoveFirst
    
    Do Until rsItems.EOF

Open in new window


The code above works fine in that configuration, but when running it against MySQL it fails.

The first error is line 2, invalid use of new keyword. Removing the word "new" gets a little further to line 5 where I get method or data member not found.

 I have tried several variations but they all give errors and I am unable to fine a set of commands that replace these for MySQL.

Any pointers very much appreciated.

I was just about to be rude as I had already been to that site and tried it. Thought I would try it one more time just to make sure. Evidently I typed something wrong my first try as this time it worked perfectly. Thanks!
