Why does my code stop after & ldquo; con.Open () & rdquo;


In my code, why does nothing execute after con.Open().
If I step through each step, it ends the Form1_Load event after con.Open().

Imports System.Data.OleDb

Public Class Form1

Dim con As OleDbConnection
Dim strCon As String = "Provider=Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0;" & _
"Data Source=C:\testDB.accdb"

Private Sub Form1_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load

    con = New OleDbConnection(strCon)

    MsgBox("con open")

    MsgBox("con closed")

End Sub
End Class

Sounds like an Error is begin raised.

Have you tried framing your code with OnError Goto Handler type code? See the On Error Statement.

If this is VB.NET, trying catching an exception with Try ... Catch. Then set a breakpoint on the Catch statements to find out what the error is.
