    I think I'm going to start quoting from the guidelines for posting.

    DETAILS, DETAILS, DETAILS. This cannot be stressed enough, the more information you provide to us, the more we can help you. We are not mind readers. No one is sure where that rumor started, but it is simply not true. We do not have a secret ActiveX Brain Widgets installed, we cannot see what's going on over there. We rely on you to provide as much information as you can.

    Once you have included everything, PREVIEW your post. Make sure links to anything you provided work. Check spelling. Does the code you provided look OK? Double check to make sure you are in the correct forum.

    Taking the extra couple of minutes to make sure your posting is correct and includes all relevant information, will save time later on. Then we wouldn't feel the need to post "Please provide a full and clear description of your problem".
    Any software I post in these forums written by me is provided “AS IS” without warranty of any kind, expressed or implied, and permission is hereby granted, free of charge and without restriction, to any person obtaining a copy. Please understand that I’ve been programming since the mid-1970s and still have some of that code. My contemporary VB6 project is approaching 1,000 modules. In addition, I have a “VB6 random code folder” that is overflowing. I’ve been at this long enough to truly not know with absolute certainty from whence every single line of my code has come, with much of it coming from programmers under my employ who signed intellectual property transfers. I have not deliberately attempted to remove any licenses and/or attributions from any software. If someone finds that I have inadvertently done so, I sincerely apologize, and, upon notice and reasonable proof, will re-attach those licenses and/or attributions. To all, peace and happiness.

    Here's the deal... unless I'm mistaken, none of us are sitting in your lap - I'm certainly not - so we don't see what you see. We only know what you tell us, which at this point, is.... nothing. You got an error. Great. You've successfully walked into the doctor's office and declared "it hurts" ... grand. What does that even mean? Did your doors fall off their hinges? Did the wheels come off your car? Did your fingers fall off? For all I know you have eels in your hovercraft.

    And if it seems like we're mocking you, we are. I am at any rate. Your join date of 2010 shows that you have been around for 11 years and 438 prior posts ... so this isn't your first trip to the rodeo... you should know how it works by now.

    I'm guessing "a ado" means an ADO Data Control.

    Re: correctionstring error

    Have you at least looked at the connection string to insure it is pointed to the right file and folder?
