Access 97 vs. 2000 Databases

Access 97 vs. 2000 Databases

I have a program in VB6 using an Access 97 database. The code I use for all my procedures is as follows:

Dim db as DatabaseSet db = DBEngine.Workspaces(0).OpenDatabase("biblio.mdb", False, False)

It works fine with an Access 97 .mdb, but with a 2000 .mdb it pops up an error. How do I correct that? Thanks!

Be sure that you’re using the Jet 4.0 library in your application. It can read both 97 and 2000 databases. Jet 3.51 cannot read 2000 databases.
