You mean showing a field from a relative table?

I assume you do want to show a relative field.

The flexgrid sample in the vb samples. (samples\pguide\msflexgd)

The can make a snapshot and assign it to the recordsource property of the datacontrol like this.

    mysql$ = "SELECT "
    mysql = mysql & "Publishers.[Company Name], "
    mysql = mysql & "Authors.Author, "
    mysql = mysql & "Titles.Title "
    mysql = mysql & "FROM Authors INNER JOIN "
    mysql = mysql & "(Publishers INNER JOIN ([title author] INNER JOIN Titles ON [title author].ISBN = Titles.ISBN) ON Publishers.PubID = Titles.PubID) "
    mysql = mysql & "ON Authors.Au_ID = [title author].Au_ID "
   
    Data1.RecordSource = mysql
