    If someone can help me deal with this Probem, I would be very grateful!!
    Thank you in advance.

    To help us help you wee need the err.description but from what you said it sounds like you need to create an installable package. Also the basics of VB installations is that you use the lowest common denominator for the OS. Which means if you want the program to run on 2k, xp, vista, 7 then you need to compile in a 2k box.



    Good Luck

    Your reflection seems fair. However, I have already compiled the project on windows xp sp / 2, it always generates the error: "Run-Time Error 20728 F

    No. I didn't. I Just created an executable file. When I copy my project folder from windows vista basic to windows xp/sp 2, it didn't work. I received the same error"20728 F". I think that i need some dll or ocx file to make it work

    That would be the problem then... find out why you need an installation in the article Why doesn't my program work on another computer? from our Classic VB FAQs (in the FAQ forum)

    To create an installation package you need to use a program like P&DW that comes with VB, or one of the many other tools available. There are links to downloads and documentation in our Application Deployment FAQ.

    I still can not understand why it doesn't work. However I found the solution, preferably using the crystal report viewer. Thank you for all your supports.

    Hi everyone!
    I develop an application in vb6.0 and mysql
    I try to make a query: (Where TableName.Date Between #" & date1 & "# And #" & date2 & "# )this works with MS Access. But it does not work with Mysql.

    So if anybody knows how to do it, I'm very happy to learn that.

    Thank you in advance!
