I have Vb4 Standard edition.I was able to determine from the
online help that I cannot create objects like Database, workspace, etc. I'm limited to the Data object.
When I try to assign a new value to a field :
Data1.Recordset.MoveFirst
Data1.Recordset.Fields(1)="England"
Data1.Recordset.MoveNext
I get run time error 3020  "update without Addnew or Edit"

Why can't I modify the value of the field ?(field(1) is a
text field size 25"
According to the Programmers Guide this should work. Any ideas?

After you do your MoveFirst to establish a current record you must use Data1.Recordset.Edit.  This then allows yout to assign data to the current record.  To update the row in the data table you use the Update method....Data1.RecordSet.Update.

Data1.Recordset.Addnew will create a new record in the table.
