    I believe this is a DLL problem but the MS KB article (Q115900) that covers it is long gone. I'll
    see if I can find an old MSDN Library that has it.

    OK, couple possibilities based on the articles.

    Either the database was converted to a different version of Access, or the 16-bit database driver
    layer has changed or is not present.

    Here are a couple obsolete MS KB articles:

    1.00

    WINDOWS


    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    The information in this article applies to:

    - Microsoft Query for Windows, versions 1.0
    - Microsoft Excel for Windows, versions 5.0
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------

    SYMPTOMS
    ========

    When you use Microsoft Query to query a Microsoft Access version 2.0
    table, you receive the following error messages:

    Obsolete Database Format

    -and-

    Couldn't add data source

    CAUSE
    =====

    This problem occurs when you try to query a Microsoft Access version
    2.0 table using the ODBC driver for Microsoft Access version 1.0 and
    1.1 tables.

    MORE INFORMATION
    ================

    The driver that shipped with the Microsoft ODBC Drivers version 1.0
    Fulfillment Kit supports Microsoft Access version 1.0 and 1.1 tables.
    The filename and version for this driver are:

    Driver: Access Data
    Filename: SIMBA.DLL
    Version: 1.01.2115

    The following driver is required to query Microsoft Access version
    2.0 database files:

    Driver: Access 2.0 for MS Office
    Filename: ODBCJT16.DLL
    Version: 1.00.1521

    To check for the correct filename and version, do the following:

    1. In Program Manager, double-click the Control Panel icon in the Main
    Group.

    2. Double-click the ODBC icon.

    3. Select the Drivers button.

    4. Select the driver you want information about.

    5. Choose the About button.

    If the Access 2.0 for Microsoft Office ODBC driver is not installed on your
    machine, run the Microsoft Access 2.0 custom Setup and install the ODBC
    support.
