Convert Access 97 to Access2000 using VB

Convert Access 97 to Access2000 using VB

Does anyone know of a way to convert access97 mdb files to Access2000 WITHOUT using access, for example using MDAC in VB6. The problem is I need to do a bulk conversion of the MDB files we used for an old VB/Access project to Access2000 format and the client does not have Access 2000 installed.

Thanks alot


RE: Convert Access 97 to Access2000 using VB

I found this:

Dim oJro As JRO.JetEngine
Dim cnn1 As String, cnn2 As String

' Creamos un nuevo objeto JetEngine
Set oJro = New JRO.JetEngine

' Cadena de conexión de origen
cnn1 = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;" & _
           "Data source=c:\Mis documentos\base97.mdb;" & _
           "Jet OLEDB:Engine Type = 4;" & _
           "Jet OLEDB:Database Password = Contraseña"

' Cadena de conexión de destino
cnn2 = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;" & _
           "Data source=c:\Mis documentos\base2000.mdb;" & _
           "Jet OLEDB:Engine Type = 5;" & _
           "Jet OLEDB:Database Password = Contraseña"

' Compactamos la base de datos
oJro.CompactDatabase cnn1, cnn2

This does exactly what is needed! :)
