Trying to open the current db in Access 2010 through Access Basic

I haven't programmed in Access Basic in quite a long time.  Through Access 
Basic coding, I use to be able to open the current database and then open a 
table and walk through each record.  Now I can't even open the database.  
Does anybody have an example of how to do the following:
1) Open Workspace
2) Open Current Database (assume name is unknown during run time
3) Open specific table
4) Step through each record and access the fields

Is this the kind of thing you want to do?

Set db = OpenDatabase("full path\mydb.mdb")
Set rs = db.OpenRecordset("table")
Do Until rs.EOF
	'do something
rs.Close : Set rs = Nothing
db.Close : Set db = Nothing

BTW, it's been Visual Basic for Access since Access 95.  The
last (only?) Access Basic was in Access 2 and, while that
was a very good version, it's more than long in the tooth
(like me) now ;-)

Opening publisher 97 with a later version
I have publisher 97 on my windows xp and it works fine. However, I had someone refine some work I had done and apparently they used a later version of Publisher because when I loaded their CD, I got the message "Publisher cannot load files from a different version" What can I do--does this mean I have to buy a later version to match the version he used, or do I have to buy one of those programs that can open other programs. If I do the later, will I be able to use my 97 version to make changes once I get the files open on the later version Thanks rjda Refer to http://www.mvps....

MS Access 2007 code not running
I have created a brand new database in Access 2007 and linked some VB code to run on Form_Load. This code worked perfect with no problems the day I created it. Now today I opened the same form and it is not running the Form_Load code anymore (and yes it is still there, I did not delete it). I got frustrated so I copied and pasted the code to Form_Current and several On_Change events and set breakpoints at the beginning of all the events just to see if it was the Form_Load that was not triggering, but NO events are triggering my VB code. Any ideas? See this page:
