I am working on a prject that requires me to display product information from an Acess database on to a VB form. In access I have built some queries and I need to use them in order to display relevent information in a list box on the VB form. The query will be called on the first VB form and the results displayed on a second VB form in a list box. Having never linked an access database to a VB project I am struggling. I have managed to display records on a seperate form and to navigate between them. It is just this query problem that I can't solve. I appriciate any help you can give.
