 Opening Database using code

I'm new to VB5 and have a problem, 'what's new?'
I'm trying to open a database and do some manipulation, it works OK
when I specify the database in the data control properties but when I
remove the location from the data control and try to use code to name
the database I get the error - directory for the file isn't a valid

This is the code I'm using

Data1.DatabaseName = App.Path & "\CDTBASIS.dbf"

In one of the sample app's with a book I have this method is used
without a problem.  The only difference in my code is the database id
***.DBF not ***.MDB.

Any ideas???
