    Before you can access the Data Environment designer, you must reference it in Visual Basic.

    To reference the Data Environment designer

    1. On the Project menu, click References.

    2. From the References dialog box, select Microsoft Data Environment 1.0, and then click OK.

    To add a Data Environment designer object to a Visual Basic project

    1) Right click on Project name [ex.Project1(Inventory.vbp) Then click ADD then Data Environment


    1) From the Project menu, choose Add Data Environment.

    The Data Environment designer is added to your Visual Basic project, the Data Environment designer window appears, and a Connection object is added to your Data Environment.

    By the way
    Microsoft Data Environment 1.0
    Location:- C:\Program Files\Common Files\designer\MSDE.dll
