    Here is an example on how I open an mdb from VB6. In this case
    the DB and the application are placed in the same directory.

    Dim cn As ADODB.Connection
    Dim rs As ADODB.Recordset
    Dim DbPath As String, Mysql As String

    ' Find path to database
    If Right$(App.Path, 1) = "\" Then
        DbPath = App.Path & "excelentDB.mdb"
        DbPath = App.Path & "\excelentDB.mdb"
    End If

    ' connect to database

    Set cn = New ADODB.Connection
    cn.Open "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0; " & _
            "Data Source=" & DbPath

    ' open a recordset

    Set rs = New ADODB.Recordset
    Mysql = "SELECT * From Tabel1"

    Set rs = cn.Execute(Mysql)

    ' do what you have to do

    Set rs = Nothing
    Set cn = Nothing

Hope this can help you-
