' Create Microsoft Jet Workspace object.
Set wrkJet = CreateWorkspace("", "admin", "", dbUseJet)

' Open Database object from saved Microsoft Jet database
' for exclusive use.

Set dbsNorthwind = wrkJet.OpenDatabase("Northwind.mdb", _
True)

' Create a recordset to get all Employees
Set rstTemp = dbsNorthwind.OpenRecordset( "SELECT *      FROM Employees", dbOpenDynaset, dbReadOnly)

'Set the value of the textbox to Employee name
Textbox1.text = rstTemp("field_name")

for instance.. flop a listbox on a form.

in the form_click event.. do this..
it will populate the listbox with the authors'last name from the authors table in your SQL Server Database..<assuming you didnt take it out>

Sub Form_click()
Dim wrkODBC As Workspace
Dim conPubs As Connection
Dim MyRec As Recordset
'assumes you have a Pubs DSN created for yourself
Set wrkODBC = CreateWorkspace("MySQLWorkspace", _
        "sa", "", dbUseODBC)
Set conPubs = wrkODBC.OpenConnection("", dbDriverPrompt, , _
      "ODBC;DATABASE=Pubs;UID=sa;PWD=;DSN=Pubs;")
Set MyRec = conPubs.OpenRecordset("SELECT au_lname FROM Authors", dbOpenSnapshot)

Do While Not MyRec.EOF
 List1.AddItem MyRec!au_lname & vbNullString
 MyRec.MoveNext
Loop
End Sub
