    Run-time error '3024': could not find the file 'c:\users\*****\Documents\dbo.mdb

    I am trying to create the structure of a SQL Server database in MS Access. This function results in the following error... Run-time error '3024': could not find the file 'c:\users\*****\Documents\dbo.mdb.

    Can anyone help me?

    Public Function importExternal(strDSN As String) As Boolean

    Dim i As Integer
    Dim retval As Variant
    Dim ODBCdb As Database
    Dim strConnection As String
    Dim srcTable As String
    Dim locTable As String
    Dim tdf As TableDef

    strConnection = "ODBC;DSN=" & Trim(strDSN)
    Set ODBCdb = OpenDatabase("", False, False, strConnection)
    DoCmd.SetWarnings False

    For Each tdf In ODBCdb.TableDefs
    If tdf.Name Like "dbo.*" Then
    srcTable = tdf.Name
    locTable = "dbo_" & Mid(tdf.Name, 5)
    DoCmd.RunSQL "SELECT * INTO " & locTable & " FROM " & srcTable & " WHERE 2=1"
    i = i + 1
    retval = SysCmd(4, "Processing " & srcTable)
    End If
    MsgBox i & " tables imported"
    End Function

    I am having the same issue with a split Access database. Was wondering if you found a solution?
