You can use any sql statements you like, there are a number of different ways of using them though, some are better than others for different things:

rstMain.Open "Select * From Main",cnnAccess,adOpenStatic,adLockOptimistic

For example returns a recordset, you can choose whether it is a keyset/dynamic/static recordset and also the locking type.

cnnAccess.Execute "INSERT INTO Main (ID,Name) Values(400,'TimCottee')"

Executes a sql statement on the connection but doesn't return a recordset, you can use the execute method to return a recordset as well but it is forward-only/read-only and may not be much use to you.

Anyway this should be enough to get you started, you should probably close this question now, and open new ones for any subsequent specific problems that you have.

Try

SELECT Name FROM Main WHERE id = Val(Text1.Text)

Add a reference to Microsoft Activex Data Object 2.x Library to your project. At least version 2.1 or higher is required for access 2000 databases:

Here is a very simple example which opens the connection on form load and closes it with the form. When you click the command button, the contents of text1 are used in the where clause of the select statement to retrieve the corresponding record and the value of the name field is put into text2. This can be expanded on at will but should give you an idea of how to proceed.

Private cnnAccess As ADODB.Connection

Private Sub Form_Load()
  Set cnnAccess = New ADODB.Connection
  cnnAccess.ConnectionString = "Provider=Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=c:\MyFolder\MyMDB.mdb"
  cnnAccess.Open
End Sub

Private Sub Form_Unload()
  cnnAccess.Close
  Set cnnAccess = Nothing
End Sub

Private Sub Command1_Click()
  Dim rstMain As ADODB.Recordset
  Set rstMain = New ADODB.Recordset
  rstMain.Open "Select Name From Main Where ID = " & CStr(Text1.Text),cnnAccess,adOpenStatic,adLockReadOnly
  Text2.Text = rstMain.Fields("Name").Value
  rstMain.Close
  Set rstMain = Nothing
End Sub

Move down the list until you find it.

You need to download MDAC from

http://www.microsoft.com/data

and install it on your computer.

I missed a bit from the connection string, use this as your connection string, but substitute your database and path instead of nwind.mdb

cnnAccess.ConnectionString = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=D:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio\VB98\Nwind.mdb;Persist Security Info=False"
