I am using Visual Basic 6 with MS Access 97 at the back end.  I am trying to set up a demo program and would like to restrict, to 25, the number of records that on can be added to any table in the database.

Any assistance would be appreciated.

hi


in place of RecordCount Condition please modify this
if recCnt.RecordCount > 25 then

  End 'Close the Application
end if

Given that you're using ADO (if not then the code would need to be tweaked a bit ;)

Private Function DemoExceeded() As Boolean

    Dim strSQL As String
    Dim rsCount As ADODB.Recordset
   
    strSQL = "Select COUNT(*) From YourTableName"
   
    Set rsCount = objConn.Execute(strSQL)
   
    If rsCount(0) > 25 Then
        DemoExceeded = True
    Else
        DemoExceeded = False
    End If
   
    rsCount.Close
    Set rsCount = Nothing
   
End Function

Then just call this function before every insert into the dB and that will help you restrict it.

Hope it helped.

I had already accepted this answer and graded it a long time ago.  I don't know why it wasn't processed.

Thanks for the help.  I should have figured this out,
but I guess I my logic was in limbo.

The answer is so obvious that I missed it.  

Again, thanks for the help.
