Access 97 code openrecordset problem

    The following bit of code returns error 13
    Dim sql As String
    Dim rs As ADODB.Recordset

    sql = "select * from Mytable where tblID = 1"

    Set rs = currentdb.openrecordset(sql)

    This code should work and code exactly similar to it works fine in other
    applications on same machine also written in Access 97,

    However in this app, when we execute the above code we always get this type
    mismatch error, however when we run the query itself in query builder it
    works fine.
    There is no error in select statement.

    We looked at the references for the app and we have dao 3.6, Ms access 8.0
    obj library

    Any help in resolving this would be greatly appreciated.

    You're using a DAO method (the OpenRecordset method of the DAO Database
    object) and trying to assign it to an ADO database.

    Either change

    Dim rs As ADODB.Recordset

    to

    Dim rs As DAO.Recordset

    or use ADO methods to open the recordset.
