In this small snip of code, I am trying to clear the current recordsource,recordsets of the data control and the data grid. And I want to be able to reset them as something else, when chosen by the iser. I hope this makes some sense. How do I go about doing this?

------------------------------------------------------


 'reset/clears datagrid before conducting search
    Set grdDataGrid.DataSource = Nothing
   
    'grdDataGrid.ReBind             do I need this?
    grdDataGrid.Refresh
       
    'closes recordset to close the previous query/datasource
    If datPrimaryRS.Recordset.State = adStateOpen Then
        datPrimaryRS.Recordset.Close
    End If
    datPrimaryRS.RecordSource = ""
   
    'resets the query building string
    sSQL = ""       'query variable
    qFlag = 0       'query flag
   
               
    'starts the search
    'creates new recordset to be used as search string(query)
    If datPrimaryRS.Recordset.State = adStateClose Then
        datPrimaryRS.Recordset.Open
        datPrimaryRS.Recordset.Requery
    End If
   
    Command4.Visible = True     'shows print button

Thanks for the points.

There are lots of people on the site who refuse to give points for good answers (because they are saving them). This is unfair and puts people off answering - I answer for the buzz of getting the points - if i dont get points its a waste of time.

Good luck with your VB.

Remember in General terms all objects close when you close a form - no need to close them.
