    When setting your connection to the database, use:
    Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0
    (instead of Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.3.51)

    Brian,

    Some months ago I wrote a tip of the month that I call 'What I Learned About
    DAO 3.6 and Jet 4.0'. Link to http://www.buygold.net/tips.html then look for
    the July 1999 tip of the month. A sample program is provided. You can also
    download the new DAO and Jet DLL from the site.

    Cheers,
    Larry Rebich

    He is using the Data Control which implements DAO, so this won't help him.
