It all depends on the datastructure in your table. What you need in a treestructure-table are a unique ID for each record and a Parent ID for each record wich is 0 for the root records.

Lets take an example DB-structure:

Table:MyDB
MyDB_ID       as Integer (autonumber)
MyDB_ParentID as Integer

Some example data:
ID       ParentID
1        0               (root node 1)
2        1               (child of node 1)
3        1               (child of node 1)
4        3               (child of node 3)

So your tree will look like:
*
** node-1
   *
   ** node-2
   *
   ** node-3
      *
      ** node-4

The control you use in VB for this type of things if the treeview control. You draw the control on your form, set the properties and then add nodes straight from your database. The trick here is: you can set a key with each node, use "K" & MyRecordset("MyDB_ID")
****************************************************************
    You can't give the node-key a numeric value, that's what the
    "K" is for.
****************************************************************

I hope this is what you needed, because your question is quite vague. If you need to make a treestructure on paper I've got some tips and tricks as well, I just finished a set of functions who do just that.

Let me know if I can be of any assistance!
