ActiveX Tree Control

I'm trying to get data from several queries onto one display, and would like to present all of the data on a tree control. Right now, I can't even figure out how to populate the tree, and online help has not been of any assistance. I'm left with what seems to be a big, blank, textbox. Can anyone please give me a little help, or give me a url of a place that can be of some assistance? Thank you.

You use the control's Nodes property which is itself a Nodes collection. The Nodes collection have the Add method to add object to it. Refer to online help for the syntax.

The only help of syntax that I found where .root, .parent, etc. Am I on the right track?
I know it is tough to get into the right help topic involving ActiveX control (blame it on Microsoft). Anyway, this is how I get to the right topic:

Put your cursor on the Style property of the Treeview control. Press F1. The Help on Style Property will display on screen. Now click on Applies To and choose Node Object / Nodes Collection. You now have the help on the Nodes Collection. Click on Methods and choose Add Method (Nodes Collection). And there you have the right help on the Add syntax.

Here is my example of how you use the Add method to your control. I name the TreeView control as "ctTree".

Private Sub Form_Load()
  Dim colNodes As Nodes
  Dim curNode As Node
  Set colNodes = ctTree.Nodes
  colNodes.Add , tvwFirst, "Root", "The Root"
  colNodes.Add "Root", tvwChild, "FirstRootChild", "First Level / First Item"
  colNodes.Add "Root", tvwChild, "SecondRootChild", "First Level / Second Item"
  colNodes.Add "FirstRootChild", tvwChild, "FirstRootChild-1", "Second Level"
End Sub
