Having trouble with temp table

Hi all, I have the following code on the click event of a button
which, every time it reaches the line marked with a * throws up a Type
Mismatch error.

Private Sub Command9_Click()

On Error GoTo Err_Command9_Click

' This subroutine illustrates how to use a temporary MDB in your app.
' If the temporary MDB is present then delete it.
' The name of the temporary MDB created is the same as the current
Front End (FE) name with
' " temp" added to the end of the name.
' Create the temporary MDB.
' Create the temporary table(s) required in the temporary MDB.
' Link to those tables within your current FE
' Do whatever you want
' Unlink the tables'
' Delete the temporary MDB

What references do you have set. From the looks of it, you need the
Microsoft DAO 3.6 Object Library and when you dimension your RS object, you
probably need to dimension it as a DAO recordset.

DIM RS as DAO.Recordset
