asked on

creating accdb file from vb script

I am attempting to build an accdb file from vb script and getting the following err.


I intent to run this on machines that do not have Access installed.  I tested on a machine that did have Access 2010 and still get the err.

VB Script:
strFileName = InputBox("Enter Access File Name",, "MyAccessDatabase")

Set objCatalog = CreateObject("ADOX.Catalog")

'objCatalog.Create "PROVIDER=Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0;DATA SOURCE =" & strFileName & ".accdb" & ";"

Set objCatalog = Nothing

MsgBox "Done"

How can I overcome the err?

Yes, it works now, I also downloaded and installed the Microsoft Office Compatability Pack which seemed to help as well.  Thanks a bunch!
