Default Do VB5 and Access 2003 play together?

I recently upgraded to Access 2003 and now when I used the VB5 application Wizard and instructed my new app to use my new Access 2003 .mdb database, VB tells me that it doesn't recognize the file...
   Is the .mdb format in Access 2003 different from that generated in Access 97, to the extent that VB5 can't use it?

  I can go back to Access 97 if that is the case...

     Thanks for any help on this.

you can try installing mdac and using ado, but you will have no control unless you upgrade them to vb6 controls...
