Opening an entire Excel 4.0 Worksheet, according to the syntax described in Books Online and according to the syntax used in all previous versions of Visual Basic, will cause Run-time error '3011.'
For a workaround, modify the Source argument for the OpenRecordset method from FILENAME#XLS to FILENAME$. Please see below for an illustration.
Set db = OpenDatabase("c:\file.xls", False, False, "Excel 4.0;HDR=NO;") Set rs = db.OpenRecordset("file$")
Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed at the beginning of this article.
The syntax specified in Books Online for working with Excel Worksheets and Workbooks is consistent with the documentation for all previous versions of Visual Basic.
Other than opening entire Excel 4.0 Worksheets, no other problems are known to exist at this time. In fact, opening a named range in an Excel 4.0 Worksheet will work just as described.
