creating a database

MFHMFH Posts: 56Member
I need to create a database from a program, because my version of access is too new to be recognized
(alternatively, how can I create a compatible database with vb6?)

thanks for the help

    There are 10 kind of people: those who understand binary code and those who don't understand it.

    I have no idea :)
    Basically through SQL you should be able to handle any database.
    If the version is too low, try using a newer version of the database controls/components/references.

    SQL is not the issue, its the ADO provider in the connection string. Access 97 [with a few quirks], 2000, and 2002 file formats will work with VB6 and an ADO provider for "Jet 4.0". I don't know if Access 2003 would work.

    I was trying to say that :P But since I have no experience at databases I doubt it came out right. Anyway, that's why I told him to look at the components/controls, to make sure those supported the new version.

    I found another solution. I have a php file that reads the database and the program has only to read the output of the php file. it's even better for what I need
    Anyway many thanks for the help!
