VB.NET 2009

VB.NET 2009

(OP)
I've searched the net many hours for code on how to create a new access database file (.accdb or .mdb) in VB 2008.

I've tried the method of creating a file and adding the .accdb or .mdb extension but it won't accept it because it hasn't the proper structure.

Anyone who has an idea?

RE: VB.NET 2009

Something like this?

Hope this helps

RE: VB.NET 2009

ok i'm experimenting with the visual basic 2008 express edition.

I copy paste the code and get an error here:

Dim cat As Catalog = New Catalog()

type catalog is not defined, I think it doesn't accept the imports ADOX statement

RE: VB.NET 2009

Have you set the COM reference to Microsoft ADO Ext. 2.7 for DDL and Security?
