I wanted to know, how can I do a tree query on a table, which allows me to retrieve the entire tree structure or sub-tree structure using one query. For example if I wanted to list all data from the root to all the nodes (having id and parentid as the identifier in the table). As I understand Oracle has the features of "Connect BY PRIOR and START WITH" to allow me to do this, but what can I use in Access.

Thanks

Hi denz_1,

As far as I know, there isn't a stright-forward solution for this in access.

You might need to write your own code to achive what you want.

You'd probably need to create two new queries (or tables):
1. For the parents.
2. For the nodes.

Notice that a node can be a parent. In the case, it should show on both queries (tables).

If you need more help on this, please provide some more information about the structure of your tree, and what are the relationships within the tree.

HTH,
