In VB6 on WIN XP pro sp3, I have successfully connected to MS Access 2003 using DAO. I am able to populate as database table with very little effort. However, while still in VB6, when I try to attach an Excel worksheet I keep getting the error Can't find installable ISAM. I remember getting this error 20 years ago, but then the systems people fixed it. I can not I even tried to upgrade the msvbvm60.dll. This does not work. I am trying to put the database table into Excel. Here is a sample of my code:
strExcelFile = App.Path & "\MySpreadSheet.xls" strWrkshtName = "WorkSheet1" strTable = "tblFileInfo" Set MyTable = DAODB.OpenRecordset("tblFileInfo", dbOpenDynaset) 'If excel file already exists, you can delete it here 'If Dir(strExcelFile) <> "" Then ' Kill strExcelFile 'End If Set objExcelApp = New Excel.Application Set objExcelWkb = objExcelApp.Workbooks.Open(FileName:=strExcelFile)
'Set objExcelWks = objExcelWkb.Worksheets(strWrkshtName) ****THIS IS WHERE I GET THE ERR MSG, WHICH IS NOT TRAPPABLE
strDB = MyFile 'Set objDB = OpenDatabase(strDB) THE DB IS ALREADY OPENED eSQL = "SELECT * INTO [Excel 11.0;DATABASE=" & strExcelFile & ";HDR=Yes]." & strWrkshtName & " FROM [tblfileinfo]" DAODB.Execute eSQL objExcelWkb.Close True objExcelApp.Quit Set objExcelApp = Nothing
Any help would be appreciated.
