     This tutorial / demo app shows you how to process an Access database using "old school" DAO (Data Access Objects) code. Covered in the tutorial is the DAO Object Model, as well as methods for recordset processing, searching, inserting, updating, deleting, etc. The sample app also uses Crystal Reports (the version that came with VB6 and VB5, not a commercial version). The Employee.mdb file that is part of this sample app is Access 97 format, and it MUST be 97 as the old version of Crystal cannot read anything higher. (If you have Access 200X, the higher version of Access will be able to read this database, but don't accept any of its offers to convert it for you.)

Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
