Populate VB DataGrid from Recordset

Could someone please help me and complete the following sub procedure.
(I am not sure if I should ask this Q on in the VB area?)

I have a Datagrid placed on a Visual Basic Form.
When I open the form, I want the Datagrid to be populated with data from a select
query.
(Could you also please let me know which library references to use.)


Dim cnn As ADODB.Connection
Dim rst As ADODB.Recordset

Private Sub Form_Load()

Set cnn = New ADODB.Connection
cnn.ConnectionString = "Provider=SQLOLEDB.1;Integrated Security=SSPI;
Persist Security Info=False;Initial Catalog=Northwind;Data Source=SQLServer"
cnn.Open
Set rst = New ADODB.Recordset
.
.
.
.
Set DataGrid1.DataSource = rst

End Sub

You'll need a reference to the 'Microsoft ActiveX Data Objects 2.XX'

And this code

rst.open "SELECT * FROM ORDERS",cnn

And yes, this belongs in the VB areas.

Yes

Actually, you need a bookmarkable recordset to be able to use in the data grid, as in:

Set cnn = New ADODB.Connection
cnn.ConnectionString = "Provider=SQLOLEDB.1;Integrated Security=SSPI;
Persist Security Info=False;Initial Catalog=Northwind;Data Source=SQLServer"
cnn.Open
Set rst = New ADODB.Recordset
With rst
    .Source = "Select * from Customers"
    Set .ActiveConnection = cnn
    .CursorType = adOpenDynamic
    .LockType = adLockReadOnly       ' Or adLockOptimistic depending on your requirements
    .CursorLocation = adUseClient
    .Open Options:=adCmdText
End With
Set DataGrid1.DataSource = rst
