and then when i m trying to assign a field to dtpicker, it is erroring that data bind faild.
please help me..

You need to break your questions into pieces and open more new posts with them. It will be impossible to cover all here without confusing other readers.:)

I'll cover the first part here. The others on your new posts. Also, keep in mind to show us some effort. No one here will just give you code for edit, delete atc.

What control to use?>>> Try and keep away from controls, there uses are "limited". If you start now with proper coding, the long run will show some results.;)

'Depending on your sql connection...., lets call it conn.

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

rsNew.Open "SELECT * FROM Yourtablenamehere", conn, adOpenstatic, adLockoptimistic

rsNew.AddNew

rsNew!Firstfieldname = Text1.Text
'and so on....

rsNew.Update

rsNew.Close
conn.Close

superb

@AndreRet...
ok i will start new theards, but u just tell me that i shouldnt use ADODC? and plz post the way to update and add the new record.

@andreRet...
i have an individual command buttons to Add, Update record..whre should i use ur given code?

andreret already posting codes to add new record with adodb way..post no #2
as he said too, if you want to add,edit or delete record please divide your thread into a couple threads..
also how far you doing this..we didn't do all entire codes for you but we help to fix your codes :)

ADODC is short for Active Data Object Data Control, which is still a control.

My code above is for adding a new record, so you will use the code under your cmdAdd Button. Just remember that the code will not work without a proper connection. This all depends on what database you are using, access, Mysql etc.

Deleting of a record is a bit more involved, because you need to first find the correct record to delete, otherwise you will delete the first record in the table every time you select delete. Open a new thread with the title "How to delete a record from access?". It will not be covered in this thread.:)

i have not kept any option for delete...
so i dont want deleting coding..
and i told u i have Ms Sql server 2000 database..
please tell me the code for add,update,edit...

and i told u i have Ms Sql server 2000 database..

My bad, first line of OP.

Now, I told you the code above is for adding a new record. Did you even try and use it.?

Ok, seeing that you are still confused with all 3 posts, here a sample of what you need. Just add the controls (cmdAdd, Text1 etc.)
Also add a reference to MS ActiveX Data Objects 2.x, where x is the version you have. -

Ignore my last post, It was solved, although only after I refreshed the page. Daniweb is going through some teething problems at the moment.:)

i m getting an error still...
some of fields are assigned numeric values in database,
just as Orgcode, Phone no.Fax..
when i m adding a record, it is erroring type mismatch..?

Jaseem, although having reference here, this is marked as solved. Please open a new thread, I am in there now. Will have a look. Also post the code and tell me where the error occurred, thanks bud.
