Data1 problem

Code:
Dim db As Database
Dim rs As Recordset
Dim sql As String
Dim Data1 As Data

Set ws = DBEngine.Workspaces(0)
sql = "Select * From employees"

Set db = ws.OpenDatabase("C:\MyDB\Nwind")
Set rs = db.OpenRecordset(sql, dbOpenDynaset)
Set Data1.Recordset = rs

Question:
The "Set Data1.Recordset = rs" line comes back with an error
of variable or with block not set, but this matches what is in the msdn

Umm, Data1 wants to be a control, not a variable. You've got it Dimmed as a data structure, this is not the same as the Data1 object.

Yes Data1 is an object, but so is a textbox and I can still write
text1.text = "Hello", why can't I point the reference of the recordset property at the rs object variable.

Again, the original code I gave is right out of the msdn so there has to be some basis for how to make it work

Hi,

If the Data1 control is already on your form, then you don't need to include it in your Dim statement.

Dim db As Database
Dim rs As Recordset
Dim sql As String

Set ws = DBEngine.Workspaces(0)
sql = "Select * From employees"

Set db = ws.OpenDatabase("C:\MyDB\Nwind")
Set rs = db.OpenRecordset(sql, dbOpenDynaset)
Set Data1.Recordset = rs

This should do the trick.

Stefaan is restating my point. You defined it with DIM and that conflicts with the control. Drop the DIM and the control should start working!
