for example:
i enter StudentNumber for the first time : AH970001
the DBGrid show all the AH970001 data.

but when i enter StudentNumber for the second time: AH 970031
the DBGrid still show the AH970001 data.

i put this coding in my Form1

is there any wrong here?

could anybody teach me on how to settle this problem?

i appreciate any help!
thanks in advance.
Private Sub Form_Load()
   Dim MySQL As String
   Dim Log As String
   Dim db As Database
   Text1.Text = Form1.Text1.Text
    Set db = DBEngine(0).OpenDatabase("c:\WINDOWS\Desktop\Psm2\PSM2.mdb")

   MySQL = "SELECT * FROM QStudentSubject where StudentNumber='" & Text1.Text & "'"
   Data1.RecordSource = MySQL
   Log = "StudentNumber='" & Text1.Text & "'"
   If Not Data1.Recordset.NoMatch Then
       Text1.Text = Data1.Recordset![StudentNumber]
       Text2.Text = Data1.Recordset![StudentIC]
       With Data1.Recordset
           If Not Data1.Recordset.EOF Then                
               DBGrid1 = Data1.RecordSource  
           End If
       End With
   End If

do that whenever you change the recordsource.  i might have them backwards (might be refresh before rebind)

you are relatively new to this site so I would ask you to please read the guidelines on comments vs answers at the bottom of this page and on 

It is not considered good practice to lock questions in this way, as this places these questions in the locked section and reduces the visibility of the question to other experts. It also tends to put pressure on the questioner to accept the proposed answer. In future, please do not post "answers" except in trivial questions which have one and only one answer such as what is 1+1. I know that is a bit simplistic but I am sure you get the idea.

Having said that I hope that you continue to contribute to this site and that your experience proves useful to many others in future.
I am also rejecting your answer, for above reasons.


This does not mean that thi comment is not valuable, it still can be accepted as an answer.

this is what dave mean...
With Data1.Recordset
          If Not Data1.Recordset.EOF Then                
              DBGrid1 = Data1.RecordSource
          End If
      End With
  End If
