Default DoCmd.TransferDatabase

In Access 2000 does anyone know what "databasetype" I would use in the connection string if I'm trying to connect via Windows NT authentication? "ODBC Database" doesn't seem to work. I keep getting the error message Run-time error '3170' "Could not find installable ISAM".

Below is a Database Connection example that I've used with Access 2000:

  Public Sub CompleteDatabaseExample()
  Dim dbMain as New ADODB.Connection        ' Declaring the Connection
  Dim rsCustomer as New ADODB.Recordset    ' Declaring the Recordset
  Dim SQL as String                    ' Declaring a simple variable

  dbMain.Open "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;" & _    ' Connecting to the Database
                 "Persist Security Info=False;" & _
                "Data Source=C:\WINDOWS\Desktop\training.mdb"

  SQL = "SELECT * FROM Customer"        ' Setting up our SQL Command statement
  rsCustomer.Open SQL, dbMain, adOpenDynamic, adLockOptimistic      ' Opening the Recordset (see Recordset Options)
  Do While Not rsCustomer.EOF            ' Loop until we reach the End-Of-File marker
    MsgBox "The Customer's Name is: " & rsCustomer("Name")    
    MsgBox "The Customer's City is: " & rsCustomer("City")
    rsCustomer("Country") = "United States"
    rsCustomer("Name") = rsCustomer("Name") & " Jr."
    rsCustomer.Update                ' Updating the Records  (see also Recordset (Working With))
    rsCustomer.MoveNext            ' Moving to the next record (necessary to reach the EOF)
  rsCustomer.Close                    ' Closing the recordset
  dbMain.Close                        ' Closing the database connection
  End Sub
