guys this is the code I used, yes it works but then it just display "FILE NOT FOUNG" all over again. I dont know where the problem is.

Help me guys, you are more trained and experienced in this forte..thank you

I personally prefer the use of ADO. It gives you so much more control over queries than a data control. Reference MS Active X data objects 2.x under references. The code will be -

Private Sub Command1_Click()

Dim con As ADODB.Connection
Set con = New ADODB.Connection

Dim rsSearch As ADODB.Recordset
Set rsSearch = New ADODB.Recordset

con.Open "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=" & App.Path & "\MyDatabaseName.MDB;Persist Security Info=False"
    
rsSearch.Open "SELECT * FROM MyTableName WHERE [Title of Books] LIKE " & "'" & Text1.Text & "'%", con, adOpenStatic, adLockOptimistic
'The LIKE function searches the database fo names that is similar than what you typed in text1...

If rsSearch.EOF = True Or rsSearch.BOF = True Then
    MsgBox "No Record Found"
        Else
    'Do here what you need if the file was found...
End If

rsSearch.Close
con.Close
End Sub
