How to attach Pervasive tables to Access database

How to attach Pervasive tables to Access database

How to attach Pervasive tables to Access database

I use DAO to attach Pervasive tables to Access in the following way:

Dim db As DAO.Database
Dim td As DAO.TableDef
Set db = DAO.OpenDatabase(strDB)
Set td = db.CreateTableDef("MyTable")
td.Connect = "ODBC;DSN=SAMPLE"
td.SourceTableName = "Table"
db.TableDefs.Append td

So when you open the Access db you will see the table attached as MyTable.

I am trying to do the same using ADO, but I just seem to be getting nowhere.

Here's what I have in ADO:

Dim catDB As ADOX.Catalog
Dim tblLink As ADOX.Table
catDB.ActiveConnection = "Provider=PervasiveOLEDB;Data Source=SAMPLE;Persist Security Info=False"
Set tblLink = New ADOX.Table
With tblLink
 .Name = "MyTable"
 Set .ParentCatalog = catDB
End With
catDB.Tables.Append tblLink

At this point I get an error: "Table MyTable already exists".

Another thing I cannot figure out is where to specify the source table name.

RE: How to attach Pervasive tables to Access database

Is the code being run in Access or VB?  Have you tried changing the following line:


catDB.ActiveConnection = "Provider=PervasiveOLEDB;Data Source=SAMPLE;Persist Security Info=False"


catDB.ActiveConnection = "DSN=SAMPLE"

The code is run in VB.

I will give the change a shot, maybe I am too focussed on Pervasive.
