Hi,
I haven't hunted around the PAQs, sorry if this question was recently asked, I'm new to the VB topic area.
I'm trying to figure out how to poll the SQL Server for databases.  I
want to display the databases in a dropdown.
TIA, kay

Create a query that does a "select name from sysobjects where type='U'" this will return a result set of the users tables (not system)

 Other types
 S=System Object
 P=Procedure
 TR=Trigger
 K=Key/Index

 Hope this helps...

I asked on behalf of a friend and he said the answer was over his head (I guess maybe more details would have helped??), but he was able to find some answers elsewhere.  Thanks.
