Programs written in Visual Basic 6.0 can access Microsoft Access 2003
databases. Knowledge of programming elements, such as functions and loops, and knowledge of databases and SQL is required to write effective code in Microsoft Visual Basic to connect to Microsoft Access 2003
databases. The ADODB object
can create a connection to Microsoft Access 2003 databases. The database records can be accessed with the ADODB.recordset API
. The Open() interface
is used to create and access the records of the Microsoft Access 2003 database. SQL may be used to perform operations such as searching the database for matching information.
Can someone explain to me how to connect VB6.0 to MS Access 2003?
In the General Declaration Area paste this:
Dim cn As New ADODB.Connection
Dim rs As New ADODB.Recordset
(in Form's Activate Event)
cn.ConnectionString = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=EMP.mdb;Persist Security Info=False"
rs.Open "select Eid,Ename,ppfSub,Basic From EmpData Order By Eid", cn, adOpenStatic, adLockPessimistic
