    Win 7 SP1 64-bit
    Word 2010
    Access 2010

    We have some fill-in form templates that we have moved from Word 2003 to Word 2010 (properly) and in the underlying form macro, there is a call to a database to pull office address information that originally was in Access 2003. The macro works just fine if it opens the 2003 version, but I want to update the database to 2010 so that I don't have to worry about compatibility issues. So, after creating a new 2010 database, I went into the Word macro and changed the name of the database in the macro to reflect the new 2010 database, and nada. The statement that accesses the database does not seem to work. Here is the text:

    Dim conn As New ADODB.Connection
    conn.Provider = "Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0"
    conn.Open Environ("ALLUSERSPROFILE") & "\Application Data\sgData01.accdb"

    Dim rs As New ADODB.Recordset
    rs.Open "select * from offices where shortName = '" & sCity & "';", conn

    I am NOT a programmer so if there is further information you need, please let me know. I assume, though, that perhaps 2010 uses something other than Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0 or something like that...

    Any and all assistance will be HUGELY appreciated!!
