hi
thanks for ur suggessions
now i got mysql connection with vb
but i need to use the mysql Queries in this application
hope i wil get solution
thank u very much

There is no difference in using access or oracle or mysql queries in VB. The process is all the same.

for select statments (opening recordset)

rs.open "your sql statment here"

for any DML

conn.BeginTrans
conn.Execute "Your sql statment here"
Conn.CommitTrans

i got this from some where
rs.Open "SELECT * FROM tbl_student_biodata", conn, 1, 2

u said only
rs.Open "SELECT * FROM tbl_student_biodata"
then what abt the rest of the statement
anyway im not getting it.
plz explain

Dim rs As ADODB.Recordset
    Dim adoConn As ADODB.Connection
    
    Set adoConn = New ADODB.Connection
    adoConn.ConnectionString = sqlcon
    adoConn.Open
    
    Set rs = New ADODB.Recordset
    rs.ActiveConnection = adoConn
    rs.LockType = adLockOptimistic
    rs.CursorLocation = adUseClient
    rs.CursorType = adOpenDynamic
     
    rs.Open sqlstr

i need to generate an id card
for that i need to display the details such as name etc which must be accessed from a mysql database and now i know how to connect to mysql database and use select statement but dont know how to display the data accessed
plz help
