I have a data control and a dbgrid that is associated with it. It pulls data from an Access Database and shows selected records in the dbgrid. This is fine. However i allow users to delete the database and create a new one. I am having problems deleting the database. I get Path/File access error when i try to run this command Kill App.Path & "\Apt.mdb" . I know it is becuase the database is connected to the data control but i do not know how to disconnect the database so i can delete it without having to close the whole application. Any ideas?

This will work:

    Set DataGrid1.DataSource = Nothing
    DataEnvironment1.Connection1.Close
    Kill "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio\VB98\Copy of NWIND.MDB"

roverm, the qn. is for DBGrid.

Maxim10553,
Try using the dbgrid/data control on a different form, and once you unload the form, it will be automatically disconnected.

Adding to DiveBlue's comments, you need to do a Refresh after setting DatabaseName to "".

Hi, look at this link (look for databasename):
http://www.mail-archive.com/beginning_vb@p2p.wrox.com/msg01425.html

So, it could be:

Data1.DatabaseName = ""
Data1.Refresh

(But still the controls bound to it, will show data, which will disappear once a connection made to data control, as per the above link).

Hope this helps.
