Hi experts,

Following VB help, I made a data-aware class (DataSourceBehavior = 1-vbDataSource) with a
recordset variable reCustomers.
I then read data from a txt file into the fields of the recordset.
I then created an object objCustomers to the class and can access the fields by
objCustomers.rsCustomers as if playing with database, fine. (see the attached class)
My problem is: how to link a text box with a field in the recordset? I tried
    Set Text1.DataSource = objCustomers
    Text1.DataField = "CompanyName"
without and error and without success:-(

----------the class------------

Option Explicit
Public rsCustomers As ADODB.Recordset

Private Sub Class_Initialize()

   Dim fld As ADODB.Field
   Dim strRow As String
   Dim items As Variant, i As Long

   Set rsCustomers = New ADODB.Recordset

   With rsCustomers
            ' Set CustomerID as the primary key.
      .Fields.Append "CustomerID", adChar, 5, adFldRowID
      .Fields.Append "CompanyName", adChar, 40, adFldUpdatable
      .Fields.Append "Fax", adChar, 24, adFldMayBeNull
            ' Use Keyset cursor type to allow updating records.
      .CursorType = adOpenKeyset
      .LockType = adLockOptimistic
      .Open
   End With

   Open "c:\Customers.txt" For Input As #1
   'input data.....
   Close #1

End Sub

try using the Class_GetDataMember() procedure:

Private Sub Class_GetDataMember(DataMember As String, Data As Object)
  Set Data = rsRecordSetName
End Sub

rsRecordSetName = rsCustomers in your case I believe

according to microsoft, GetDataMember() returns "the recordset to the client application to provide data binding". rsRecordsetName is the name of the recordset that you open in the class, which in your case is rsCustomers. Your full code should look like this:

'--------- Code starts ------------
Option Explicit
Public rsCustomers As ADODB.Recordset

Private Sub Class_Initialize()

  Dim fld As ADODB.Field
  Dim strRow As String
  Dim items As Variant, i As Long

  Set rsCustomers = New ADODB.Recordset

  With rsCustomers
           ' Set CustomerID as the primary key.
     .Fields.Append "CustomerID", adChar, 5, adFldRowID
     .Fields.Append "CompanyName", adChar, 40, adFldUpdatable
     .Fields.Append "Fax", adChar, 24, adFldMayBeNull
           ' Use Keyset cursor type to allow updating records.
     .CursorType = adOpenKeyset
     .LockType = adLockOptimistic
     .Open
  End With

  Open "c:\Customers.txt" For Input As #1
  'input data.....
  Close #1

End Sub

Private Sub Class_GetDataMember(DataMember As String, Data As Object)
 Set Data = rsCustomers
End Sub
'---------------- End code --------------
