"Unrecognized Database Format" Error Message

If you got "Uncrecognized Database" Format" error message,
it's probably because the access database version that you work with
isn't compatible with your DAO reference.

To add the compatible reference to DAO:
from VB menu choose Project-> References, mark the Microsoft DAO 3.6 Object Library
check box, and press OK.

If you Don't have Microsoft DAO 3.6 Object Library reference, click on browse,
and select the file C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Dao\dao360.dll
(If you have Access 2000 installed in your computer you have this file.)
This will add Microsoft DAO 3.6 Object Library reference to your project.
Now mark it and press OK.
