Default Using VB6 SP2 to Open Access 2003 .mdb

I am having a heck of a time getting my VB6 SP2 application to Open an Access 2003 .mdb.

Code Snippet is

Dim db as database
Dim dbe as New DBEngine

 FileName = String$(255, 0)
    result = GetPrivateProfileString("DB", "Article", "", FileName,_
             55, iniFileName)
    FileName = Mid$(FileName, 1, result)

    Set db = dbe.OpenDatabase(Filename)
