How to create parent to child tabbed windows

i need to create a vb program that shows address book entries in the main view (window A). i need two more windows one for documents (window b)related to the address book entry that is selected and one for notes (window c)related to the address book entry that is selected as the user selects a new address book entry i  want the data in the documents and notes to change match. I need each window to be linked to a corrosponding table using ADO.

I have not started this and would appreciate code examples links and helpfull tips, i have more points if needed.

layout

--------------------------
|                         |
|  window a               |
|                         |
--------------------------
|          |              |
| window b | window c     |
--------------------------

Question:

Are all of these windows on one form? or are they different forms?

Also - is this a single document interface, or multiple document interface?

Do you have the databases set-up?

The link you refer to can be acheived in several ways.  I prefer to use events and code.

If an item is selected in view A, you will know because an event will be triggered (MouseUp for instance).

In this event, add the code to call a routine that will populate a recordset via a "Select * from MyTable Where ForeignKey = SelectedKey" (SelectedKey is the value of the item selected in view A and ForeignKey is the "linking or relational field(s)" for the data to displayed on the views).

Then put the fields into labels or textboxes residing on the view b and view c as desired.

I have not got a database set up yet and would use a MDI interface.

So your WindowA, WindowB, WindowC are all seperate forms within the same MDI application?  Yes?

I would agree with khampton in terms of using the events to trigger code that will update the data in the other two forms.

I can give you an example if this is what you are looking for, but it would require a lot of assumptions on my part.
