cUserA string that identifies the owner of the new Workspace object.
cPassWordA  string containing the password for the new Workspace object. The password can be up to 14 characters long and can include any characters except ASCII character 0 ( null ). See the Password property for more information on valid passwords

A workspace object




You can use the following constants for liType




dbUseJetCreates a Microsoft Jet workspace


dbUseODBCCreates an ODBCDirect workspace





The liType option determines whether the new Workspace is a Microsoft Jet or ODBCDirect workspace. If you set liType to dbUseODBC and you haven't already created any Microsoft Jet workspaces, then the Microsoft Jet database engine will not be loaded into memory, and all activity will occur with the ODBC data source subsequently identified in a Connection object. If you omit liType, the DefaultType property of DBEngine





will determine which type of data source the Workspace is connected to. You can have both Microsoft Jet and ODBCDirect workspaces open at the same time



DaoDbEngineThe DBEngine object contains and controls all other collections and objects in the DAO object hierarchy
