I never find a way of giving a recordset to MSChart to produce a chart.

Here is my method:

    intX = 0
    Do until rs.eof
        With MSChart1
            .Row = intX + 1
            .Column = 1
            .Data = Val(rs.fields("Field1")
            .Column = 2
            .Data = Val(rs.Fields("Field2")
            .Column = 3
            .Data = Val(rs.Fields("Field3")
        End With
        rs.movenext
    Loop

Give up on the MSChart control and "roll your own". Is not that hard to do and you'll wind up with a form that behaves well instead of that !##%^## MSChart turd.

Most controls (Text boxes, etc.) allow connection to an access database via a data control. The data control specifies the database file and primary table, the controls reference the data control and spec the fields. MSChart is stupid control and requires you to pass data to it every time the current record changes.

I had a great surprise this morning. MS-Chart (in VB6) can now be data dound!!!

Follow these steps:
-Start a new project in VB6.
-Add the Microsoft ADO Data control 6.0 in the components.
-Add the Microsoft Chart control 6.0 in the components.
-Add a Chart to your form.
-Add a Data control to your form.
-Using the (Custom) property of your Data Control, set it to your datasource.
-Set the Datasource property of the Chart to your Data Control.
-Run the project.
