    Can someone let me know how to make a connection from VB6 to an Access
    database so I can pull information from the tables in Access to use in
    the VB6 program?

    I want to store the connection in the global variable

    gstrAccessConnection

    Thank you,

    Jason

    If you're talking about an ADO Connection string, Carl Prothman has one of
    the best repository of Connection strings that I know. Take a look at
    http://www.carlprothman.net/Default.aspx?tabid=81 for both OLE DB Provider
    for Microsoft Jet and ODBC Driver for Access.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
