"unrecognized database format" in VB6.0 and Access 2002

P: 1
Dear Sir/Madam,

I'm writing a small VB6.0 and Access 2002 application in XP OS. I selected the data control property RecordSource, I got the "Unrecognized database format 'xxx/xx/*.mdb' " error. when run the application and double selected the *.mdb database, I got the same error. Why?

I did converted the database file to access 2002. did i make any mistake when setup the reference or component?

can anyone give a help as soon as possible?

thanks,
david

does the db openup in Access 2002? It it does then it must be okey, else
try re-exporting the mdb . Also you need to recheck what provider u using, may be try using Microsoft Jet 3.51 OLE DB Provider while accessing the db

I've solved this problem by converting de database to acces97 format, this can be done by opening the database in your access 2000 or superior, menu tools, database utilities, then you have the option to change your db to access97 format.

Actually this is not the correct soluton for your problem

if you again use MSAccess above 2000 then you will get this problem again

the correct solution is to install "VB SP6" (Service Pack 6)
and you will never get the problem again
you can download this at

ok
All the best

Hello buddy

First check your provider if it is 4.0 or 3.5 if it is 3.5 then set it to 4.0


Use ADODC instead of using Data
