I am trying to open some dbf files and two of the three I am trying to open does so just fine, but the third one gives this error:

"The Microsoft jet database engine could not find the object 'NewStructures'. Make sure the object exists and that you spell it's name and the path name correctly"

I know the file exist and this code works with two other dbf files placed in the same path.

Any ideas why it does not work?
