Hi,

Create a ODBC for the database say MyODBC

And use this Connection String

Dim AdoCn As New ADODB.Connection

AdoCn.ConnectionString = "Provider=MSDASQL.1;Password=MyPassword;Persist Security Info=True;User ID=MyUserID;Data Source=MyODBC"
AdoCn.Open

Thanks Veena for your answer I appreciate it very much... but can u give me a detailed code from opening a connection to closing a connection.... I'm really not good in database, I know this is too much.

Thanks anyway...

Hi,

Create a ODBC.
Add References to ur project "Microsoft ActiveX Data Objects 2.0 Library" (or any latest Version if u have)

In MDI Form Load :

Dim ad as ADODB.Connectionset ad=New ADODB.ConnectionLet ad.ConnectionString= "MyODBC;DSN=" & DatabaseName & ";UID=" & UserName & ";PWD=" & UserPasswordad.Open

To Get records from the Database use
dim ar as ADODB.recordsetset ar=new adodb.recordsetar.open "Select * From EmpMas Order By ENo"If Not (ar.EOF And ar.BOF) Thenar.MoveFirstdo while not ar.EOF Debug.Print ar("ENo") ar.movenextloopTo execute an SQL Statement :

ad.Execute "Update EmpMas Set EName ='MyName' Where ENo=1"

I Hope it is clear.

Hi,

Sorry I thought it was already running in sql connection, it was the other program using Microsoft Access is the one is running...

I'm still having a runtime error like this:

Runtime error '3709'

when I click debug it is pointing on

ar.Open "SELECT editorname FROM editormaster"

I dont know how to solve it.

ar.Open "SELECT editorname FROM editormaster", ad

Hope this will work
