Creating views with ADOX

Hi all,

I'm trying to create a query on a Jet 4 database using ADOX. My code is as follows:

Dim ca As New Catalog
ca.Create "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data source=C:\Temp\Test.mdb"

Dim co As New Command
co.CommandType = adCmdText
co.CommandText = "SELECT * FROM TableName"

ca.Views.Append "TestView", co

That runs without errors, and I can see the query just created in the MSysObjects and MSysQueries system tables. I can even execute it from code. But it does not appear on the Access database window. The properties in the system tables are different from the properties of queries created using Access.

What should I do to view the query in the Access database window?

Regards,
Cesar.

Access doesn't have real views. It has Queries. Try to add them as Stored Procs.

emoreau, thanks for your reply. I have tried to add them as Catalog.Views and Catalog.Procedures, but the result is always what I have described.

Anthony, what should I do with those questions?

The one about MAPI has not been answered, and nobody has proposed any helpful comment. The one about the modem makes no sense anymore, since I'm not using that modem anymore, and problem suddenly fixed itself. The one about PPTP has a proposed answer with no text. What should I do?

I have repeatedly proposed to Community Support that they put in place some mechanism to delete or PAQ questions when they are no longer applicable or no experts seem to have an answer. I did not have any success by the moment.

So, what can you recommend?

Thanks & regards,
Cesar.

I would post a message in Community Support asking to delete these questions.

If it is any consolation I duplicated your problem with creating the query using ADOX. According to MSDN the only way you can create a query in Access is using DAO (ugh!)

Anthony, thanks again. My problem is not creating queries; actually I can create them with ADOX and use them later from code. My problem is viewing such queries in the Access database window!

ADOX seems to be able to create the queries, but apparently it does not set all necessary properties so Access realises that the queries exist.

Regards,
Cesar.

What I meant was the only way you can create Access queries that you can see in the database is with DAO.  Check out this article from MSDN:
Using ActiveX Data Objects in Microsoft Access 2000
http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/off2000/html/acmscUsingADOInAccess2000.asp

and I think you will see what I mean.

Thanks, Anthony.

Maybe they add that functionality to ADO.NET sometime!
