i have tried but all the records is comming in a
list box1

rs.Open "SELECT distinct * from mr ", con, adOpenDynamic, adLockOptimistic

what do you mean by only distinct row .

i believe that means all the fields in a row are same.

distinct will definately filter that out.

i got syntax error.

Private Sub Form_Load()
  Set con = New Connection
 con.Open ("Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Persist Security Info=False;Data Source=\\asfserver\itp$\Product_tabletest.mdb")
 Set rs = New adodb.Recordset
'rs.Open "SELECT distinct req_no,emp_name,job_no,mr_date from mr  ", con, adOpenDynamic, adLockOptimistic
 [B]rs.Open "SELECT distinct(*) from mr ", con, adOpenDynamic, adLockOptimistic[/B]
' List1.AddItem (rs!req_no & vbNullString & "         " & rs!emp_name & "    " & rs!job_no & "  " & rs!mr_date)
 While (Not (rs.EOF))
 strReq = rs!req_no & ""
 strName = rs!emp_name & ""
 strJob = rs!job_no & ""
 strDate = rs!mr_date & ""
 List1.Font = "Courier New"
 List1.AddItem strReq & " " & strName & " " & strJob & " " & strDate
 rs.MoveNext
 Wend
 End Sub

Private Sub List1_Click()
rs.MoveFirst
MsgBox (List1.ListIndex)
'rs.Find "req_no= '" & STRREC & "' "
If List1.ListIndex >= 0 Then
