Hello there:


Could you assist me with a data link file question? You can? Great!
Here’s the thing. I am using a .UDL file and on the ALL tab I want it to
access a workgroup file. Here’s the text from dragging the icon to a text
pad editor:


˙ž[ o l e d b ]

; E v e r y t h i n g a f t e r t h i s l i n e i s a n O
L E D B i n i t s t r i n g

P r o v i d e r = M i c r o s o f t . J e t . O L E D B . 4 . 0 ; D a t
a S o u r c e = C : \ A W a r e \ V B F o l d e r \ A c t i v e X 4 A
W A R E \ C o n n e c t i o n L e s s \ A d o C o n n \ V B 6 F i l e s \
P r o V B 6 D B . m d b ; M o d e = R e a d | W r i t e ; P e r s i s t
S e c u r i t y I n f o = F a l s e ; J e t O L E D B : S y s t e m
d a t a b a s e = C : \ A W a r e \ V B F o l d e r \ A c t i v e X 4
A W A R E \ C o n n e c t i o n L e s s \ A d o C o n n \ V B 6 F i l e s
\ M m d . m d w ; J e t O L E D B : C r e a t e S y s t e m D a t a
b a s e = T r u e ; J e t O L E D B : E n c r y p t D a t a b a s e =
T r u e

Ok! Now here’s my command in VB6 enterprise with an ADO component:


sConnectionString = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;" _
& "Persist Security Info=True;" _
& "Data Source= " & sDBLocation & ";" _
& "Mode=Read|Write;" _
& "Jet OLEDBatabase; Uid=janxoly; Password=oxxixe"


I get an error about the workgroup file could not be found or is in use.


The Article ID: Q189680 How to use data link files with ADO explains to
do one of the following:

Using a Data Link File in Code with an ADO Connection
Using a Data Link file for an ADO connection is fairly simple. Here is the
syntax, using an absolute path:

cnPubs.ConnectionString = "File Name=C:\Path\To\Pubs.UDL;"
You can also use a relative path as shown in the following example:
cnPubs.ConnectionString = "File Name=Pubs.UDL;"
-or-
cnPubs.ConnectionString = "File Name=Data\Pubs.UDL;"



I am lost whats the File Name = and is this DB.Recordset = path. Could you
point me in the right direction.


Thank you
