Change your code to this:

strSQL = "select top 10 from tbl_Transactions where Account_Number='" & UserAccGlobal_Login & "'"

thx for rply but it does not work:
it says:
the SELECT statement includes a reserved word or argument name that is misspelled or missing, or punctuation is incorrect.


Sorry it should be "SELECT TOP 10 *"

Give that a shot.


it works but the problem is that i need the last ten records added. And the code above selects the top 10 from my table.

If you need the last ten records updated you'll have to sort by some column; ideally a DateTime field. If there is a primary key field you can use that too. For example if u had a column called "DateAdded" just add this:


The DESC is descending order. If that is the opposite of what you need then use ASC (ascending).

I tried something like
"SELECT TOP 10* FROM Table ORDER BY DateAdded DESC.......but is
not working either.

Hey thx a lot for yur help...i got the solution.
