How do I display data (not dataset) on the form just like you see the inbox mail (not allow editing on the data and no first empty column on the left of dataset)?
I want to display the master list of names first, then click on the name to bring up that person's information details on the children form (where you can update).

you need to use datasets to store the data for viewing
try binding a datagrid to the data in a dataset

you could also try datareaders but they are used for tranfering data into variables, textboxes and other controls

You know its really easy to type in what you want.. but have you worked on it? if so post the code and let me have a look into it..
