I'm trying to connect to a access 2007 database with VB 9 and am having some problems.
I went to Data and then selected add new datasource.
Then I clicked on database and selected Next.
I click on new connection, change the datasource to access database file and then click ok.
Now I'm stuck. It doesn't give me a browser box so I can choose where my access database file is. All it shows me is a connection string label and a text box to the right of it. I tried entering the full path to my accdb file in that connection string box and also just the name of the file itself since it's in the same directory but get the error message "format of the initialization string does not conform to specification starting at index 0."
Also, when I click on test connection, it always says succeeded even though no database has been selected.
