'Declare objects
Private cnnSQL As ADODB.Connection
Private rstData As ADODB.Recordset

Private Sub Form_Load()
'Initialise connection and open it
  Set cnnSQL = New ADODB.Connection
  cnnSQL.ConnectionString = "Provider=SQLOLEDB.1;Data Source=<MYSERVERNAME>;Initial Catalog=<MYDATABASENAME>;Integrated Security=SSPI;Persist Security Info=False;"
End Sub

Private Sub Form_Unload()
'Close and destroy the connection object
  If cnnSQL.State <> adStateClosed Then
  End If
  Set cnnSQL = Nothing
End Sub

You can then use the .Execute method of the connection object:

cnnSQL.Execute "Insert Into MyTable Values(100,'Hello','Something')"

To execute standard SQL statements.

You can also use the recordset object to open a recordset:

Set rstData = New ADODB.Recordset
rstData.Open "Select * From MyTable",cnnSQL,adOpenStatic,adLockOptimistic
With rstData
  Msgbox .Fields("MyField").Value
  .Fields("MyField").Value = "Hello"
  Msgbox .Fields("MyField").Value
 Loop Until .Eof
End With

To perform select statements and also you can add/update/delete records from this recordset and hence the underlying table(s).

More or less Tim you code works .
Thanks ! How do I select a particular record and delete it . Secondly I want to read data from a text file which is
in comma delimeted and then insert the records into aable . During my every insert of a complete file I need to possible rename the table and create a table and then insert the fresh fields.

As for the comma delimited file, use something like this to read the information in and write to the table:

If you have csv data then you should definitely look at using a DTS package in SQL server, or use the BCP utility which will achieve this far quicker than manipulating the data through VB. If you have SQL server 2000 you can create a DTS package and save it as VB code so that you can modify the way it works and use different tables etc.

As for finding a record and deleting it, you can use either

cnnSQL.Execute "Delete From MyTable Where MyKeyField = 'MyValue'"


With rstData
  .Find "MyKeyField = 'MyValue'"
End With
