VB6 / DAO 3.6 / run time error: Couldn't find installable ISAM

Hi Experts,

I've got 3 VB6 applications all using DAO 3.6.

They were working happily 3 months ago.
I haven't made any changes to the source code during that time.

Now when I run the codes from the VB6 development environment I get this run time error:

Couldn't find installable ISAM.

The .exe files that were built 3 months ago run without the error.

Regards,
Leigh

Just for the record:

I have recompiled one of apps.
Running the .exe does not have the "Couldn't find installable ISAM" problem.

Sometimes the data connections are mis configured (Old settings )...so check the Connect property.
