I am using VB 4 to make a front end for an Excel database.  The front end is read only and the user is allowed to scroll through the entries and search for particular fields.  I am using a data control and binding labels to the appropriate fields.  How can I allow the user to search for X in fieldY?

If X is a numeric value:
Data1.Recordset.FindFirst "fieldY = X"
If X is a text value:
Data1.Recordset.FindFirst "fieldY = 'X'"

I will assume I can resubmit for points.

If X is a numeric value:
Data1.Recordset.FindFirst "fieldY = X"
If X is a text value:
Data1.Recordset.FindFirst "fieldY = 'X'"

Change the RecordsetType on your Data Control from 0 - Table to 1 - Dynaset
