Okay, there is more than one way in which to use excel with visual basic 6.0. Now, you said as a database so you will need to use your friends (yahoo, google, ask, answers, bing) and search for vb6 ado tutorial. Then see http://www.connectionstrings.com for a DNS LESS connection string that you will need for your ADO connection.

Also, you could use your friends to search for vb6 automating excel tutorial...

Good Luck

I can tell you a very simple way. like:
put a data control in your form. go to data control properties. select database name and then select the record source ( table name).
one thing you need service pack 6 (vb) for use office 2003.
you can use visual basic 6

I did the work before that you advised. But when I click on record source the following message is shown: unrecognized database format ' E\Salary in Access.mdb'.
I use MS Access 2003 and MS Visual Basic 6.0. Isn't it possible?

Now what problem may arise here? Plz suggest me anyone.
