Hi,

Add "Microsoft ActiveX objects 2.0" References to the project.
use this code:

Dim rs As New ADODB.Recordset
Dim AC As New ADODB.Connection
With AC
.ConnectionString = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=C:\MyDB.mdb;Persist Security Info=False"
.Open
End With
ssql = "Select * from MyTable"
Set rs=Nothing
RS.Open ssql,AC
If RS.EOF Then
  ' No Record Found
Else
  'Records Found
End If

Why do you want to use the command button instead of a data control? Coz if you'll do that and then if you have another command you'll have to call/access again the database. the advantage of the data control is that you only ask the data control to display the data you wanted without "connecting again" to the database... just an opinion/thought hehehe, please don't get me wrong:$

thanx for your opinion....
but i guess data control has some limitations...
i may be wrong though.....
kindly guide me.....

yeah! you cannot put them in modules hehehe I use controls than declaring variables to lessen the code so that it more readable. but of course I use variables too but only when needed. So how's your project now?
By the way are you using

Option Explicit

in your vb?

but i have bought a black book on vb6.......:)
i'll contact you as soon as i get it in a better shape...

adoRecordset.Open "select Project_Name,BU from Risk_Analysis", db2, adOpenStatic, adLockOptimistic

Hi,

Check the following:

DB2 ADO Connection Object is open or not.
Declare RST
Dim RST As New ADODB.Recordset
Set RST=Nothing
RST.Open "select Project_Name,BU from Risk_Analysis", db2, adOpenStatic, adLockOptimistic
