    Unable to find connection string

    I am doing Reverse Engineering of an application where the data is fetched from the Tab files and stored in database(i.e. mdb files).
    I am unable to find the connection string to DAO database while debugging the macro. Also have searched the whole macro with keywords like "Provider" and "DataSource" but I am unable to find any.

    Is there any other alternate way to connect to the Access Database?

    Have you checked the "Existing Connections" in the Data tab?

    Use ODBC and link the tables in.
    In access,check the connection via:

    Currentdb.tabledefs("tMyTable").connection
