URGENT: Using "Index" and "Seek" in DataEnviroment

Posted on 2002-03-26
Last Modified: 2010-05-02

I use DataEnviroment to work with my Access 2000 DataBase. How can I look for records in a certain table using "Index" and "Seek"? "FindFirst" etc work very slowly. That's why I don't want to use it.

You can send me an example to my e-mail:  or to publish it here.

Thanks in advance.

If the operation is not frequently use, then try to use "Where" condition in SQL rather than use FindFirst.

Hi baltman,

All those examples do not work with DataEnviroment. Can you please give me an example for DataEnviroment.


Hi ryancys,

I will use seek a lot, that's why I need something that works very fast.
