The above error keeps popping up when I try to add a new record the access database connected to my vb6 program.

The debugger points to the line of code "datUser.addnew" as being the problem. datUser is the name of the data control connecting the database program and the program. Any ideas on what is causing this?

Yeah paste some code right here so we can have a look.
Here's something to do also
Do you have VB6 Pro or higher?
If so use the Data Wizard to create a form to your Access database
It will create several button to add, delete, and update records
Look at what it writes for the correct syntax.

RE: This Action was canceled by an associated object (error #3426)

Private Sub cmdAdd_Click()
On Error GoTo AddErr

Exit Sub
MsgBox Err.Description
End Sub

Here is a sample of what the data Form wizard created for Adding a new record.

click Add-Ins, AddIn Manager, find Data form Wizard in the list.
Next click the Loaded/unloaded radio button in the lower right.
It will show up when you click Add-Ins again.

RE: This Action was canceled by an associated object (error #3426)

This error is being generated because the AddNew command of a bound recordset causes Visual Basic to try to save the current record if the data has changed. Because the data control is currently pointing to a NULL record and not an empty record, the data cannot be saved so the "action was cancelled by an associated object" error is reported. This is commonly seen when using the data form wizard in Visual Basic versions 4.0 and 5.0. The data form wizard in Visual Basic 6.0 generates code for the ADO data control so this error is less likely to occur.
