What are the differences and advantages of using TV 6 verses TV 5 ?
Does 6 solve some of the basic problems that 5 sp2 has.  I notice that in tv 5 when I drag and drom some times the incorrect parent gets attached rather than the one that was orginally selected.  Also I notice that I'm unable to drag and scroll the list at the same time to drop further up or down in the tree control.

Thanks

It depends on which version of Access you are using.  If you are using Access 97, you are unable to use TV 6 as it is only compatible with VB6, which is used in Access 2000.

If you are using Access 2000, you should be using TV 6.

If your code is written correctly, you should be able to drop the item wherever you want it on the list.  That is if it is to become the child of an item on the target list.  If it is not, then when the TV is requeried, it will show up wherever the code determines it should belong.  It is all up the code that you write.

I'm never seen a situation where the wrong parent gets picked up.  It could be that the indexes are out of whack.  I'm just guessing here.

Interesting.  What if my Acccess 97 application is opened in Access 2000.  Then access 2000 will convert the application to be access 2000  compatable.  Will this be a problem for the Active-X TV5 or will it convert it to TV6?

Thanks

Access 2000 works fine with TV 5.  I converted an application from 97 to 2000 and it kept using TV 5.  I'm not a great expert on 2000 yet therefore I'm not sure how to use TV 6 with it.

The only way to find out is to try it yourself.

Are you using TV 6 with your 97 application at this time?  If so, how did you get it to even work?
