Getting "Could not find installable ISAM files" while Connecting vb6 with access 2003 using DAO control
Tuesday, April 03, 2012 11:23 AM
I m trying to connect vb6 with Access 2003 database using DAO control.
I got "Unrecognised database file format" error. So I changed the CONNECT property of the DAO control from ACCESS to ACCESS 2000.
Now this error has gone, but When I tried to select Record Source property of the DAO control,
It said "Could not find installable ISAM files".
Could you please help me to provide the solution?
Thanks in Advance

Somehow this is C# forum the vb forum is here:
My advise is migrate to VB.NET.

This is the C# General Forum.

The DAO embedding control is no longer distributed or supported by Microsoft. Too many problems and bugs.
You're asking about all three at the same time.
I hate being the messenger with bad news, but that is the state of things. Sorry. You might also have a bad connection string.
