    Resolved [RESOLVED] Error connecting to Jet database

    Using this code:

    Public Class Form1
    Private Sub cmdOpenDatabase_Click(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles cmdOpenDatabase.Click
    Dim cn As New OleDb.OleDbConnection("Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OleDb.4.0;DataSource=C:\Data\TestDb.mdb")
    cn.Open()
    If cn.State = ConnectionState.Open Then
    MsgBox("Database open SUCCEEDED.")
    cn.Close()
    Else
    MsgBox("Database open FAILED.")
    End If
    End Sub
    End Class

    The solution compiles without error, but when it executes the cn.Open() statement it fails with this error:

    System.Data.OleDb.OleDbException: 'Could not find installable ISAM.'

    What am I doing wrong?

    Turns out that DataSource must be rendered as Data Source [with a space].

    Duh, I didn't notice that. Explains it all.
