Object missing?? in an ADO open connection CLASS

I have the following code in a MODULE.

' Open a connection.
Set myconn = New ADODB.connection
myconn.ConnectionString = _
"Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;" & _
"Data Source=" & DB_Path_File_param & ";" & _
"Persist Security Info=False"
myconn.CursorLocation = adUseClient

ListFields(myconn, tbl_or_qry_selected_item)

It works fine.

I then attempted to make the 'open connection' code
into a CLASS, like this:
Public Function Open_ADO_conn_to_Jet(Path_Filename As String) As Object
Dim connection As ADODB.connection
' Open a connection.
Set connection = New ADODB.connection
connection.ConnectionString = _
"Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;" & _
"Data Source=" & Path_Filename & ";" & _
"Persist Security Info=False"
connection.CursorLocation = adUseClient

Open_ADO_conn_to_Jet = connection

End Function

and THEN call the function with this
Set DB_Hookup_dbf = New DB_Class_dbf

Set myconn = DB_Hookup_dbf.Open_ADO_conn_to_Jet (DB_Path_File_param)

The DB_Path_File_param passed is okay.

BUT this results in a 424 Runtime error, of OBJECT REQUIRED. I am somewhat miffed
by just what I have done incorrectly here. Where am I missing an object here?

    : Open_ADO_conn_to_Jet = connection

    You forgot the "Set".

    Also, the class is named Connection, and it's not a good idea to name a variable the same name as a class or type. This may not be an actual problem with your code in this case, but it's still not a good idea.
