I am trying to make a program that uses an access database.

I need to ask after a string and then give the possible fields from the database.

Example:
In the database stands "Tom", "Anna", "Kim", "Bruno", ...
And you fill in as string "n".
Then it has to give the names "Anna", "Bruno"

Then i need to click on one of the names and then i need to go in the database to that field so i can alter it.

Can anybody help me with this

thx

What data access method are you going to use? ADO or DAO?

Hi Fireball1,

Use

"Select * from myTable Where myField = '%n%'"

or

"Select * from myTable Where myField = '*n*'"

regards.

Ok, so we are talking ADO. ryancys's first suggestion works here:

Dim strToMatch As String

sqlStatement = "Select * From MyTable Where MyField Like '%" & strToMatch & "%'"

Then use sqlStatement in your command object's recordsource property. Refresh the command and you have a narrowed down recordset, or alternatively use the recordset created by the command and filter it:

rsCommand1.Filter = "MyField = '%" & strToMatch & "%'"

You then have a filtered recordset with only the matching records.
