Opening Access 2.0 DBs

Opening Access 2.0 DBs

Question:
I am trying to connect my MS ACCESS 2.0 Database to the WWW viaa VB-CGI-Script. I figured out, how to transfer data from a HTML-Form to my VB-programm but for some reason I can’t open any ACCESS 2.0 Databases with this VB 3.0 Programm. I know thatI have to install the MS Compatibility Layer and I did so, butit does not help. Do you have any idea what I am doing wrong?I think I did something wrong in the installation of the Compatibility Layer but it seems to be so easy. I don’t know what went wrong. I can access Databases in the ACCESS 1.1 format sothe problem must be the Compatibility Layer.Do you have any idea what could have gone wrong?

Answer:
Make sure you have Access 2.0 installed on the machine where the VB program is running. The compatibility layer does not replace Access 2.0; rather, it just allows you to read that version of DB.
