I am using MS ADO 2.6 and I want to know how do I search a column for a certain entry.  I have a table called UserLog with columns called: Name, Date, Time.  The Name column has an index called PrimaryKey to prevent multiple entries.  How do I search the Name column for an entry called John Doe and will find it fast(I have a lot of entries in the database)?

This is my code to connect to the database:

Private Sub Command1_Click
Dim ILConnect As New ADODB.Connection
Dim ILRecordset As New ADODB.Recordset
ILConnect.Open "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Persist Security Info=False;Data Source=C:\windows\desktop\dfd.mdb"
ILRecordset.LockType = adLockPessimistic
ILRecordset.Open "UserLog", ILConnect, , , adCmdTable
End Sub

First of all if your planning to use ACCESS database only then there is nothing better than DAO.

Anyway thats just a thought, but do you really want to be going to the database everytime you make a search?

I dont think that would be a wise thing to do. Why dont we open a recordset containg all the data of the table, yes it would take long the first time it opens but after that all we need to do is filter our recordset. This would be alot faster.

I think I submitted the question twice but got two different answers.  They both work and they give me two options to choose from.  Thanks for your assistance.
