Alright, ive been looking through some programs i made in previous programming classes, and i found one which i want to use. Made in Visual Basic 6.0, it uses a data object, which utilizies an MS Excel speadsheet. the problem is that when i run the app, i get a windows installer box claming that it can't find the installer package (.msi) for DAO. the box which shows which directory to look for just says "1". ive tried installing ms office (2k), but no luck. Its there something im missing? BTW, i noticed that in my Add/Remove, there are two DAO's listed, one from ATI (im assuming from my tv wonder card), and one from jasc software. I suppose the jasc software one is my focus in this problem. Any help is greatly appreciated!
