I am somewhat new to VB6.  Here is my quandary.  I have a form with a DataGrid on it, I have a field with a PASSED value from another form, that is PASSED on form load.

I need to have the SQL statement in the ADODC, RecordSource select the record from the database based on the value from the form field (that was passed).

select Est_No,Est_Notes,Est_Opening_Date,Est_Opening_Location,Est_Opening_Time,Est_Value from tblEstInfo Where Est_No = [this is where I need it to select the record based on the PASSED value in the txtEstNo text box]

Any help would be greatly appreciated????

Thanks in ADVANCE

How about:

...... Where Est_No =" & Chr$(34) & txtEstNo.Text & Chr$(34)

The SQL statement goes in the DataGrid/ADODC/RecordSource/CommandText box...

did you fully qualify text box name?
I mean frmWhatEver.txtEstNo.text

or are you trying to put that sentence in the property of datagrid?
If last one, you cannot do it that way, at least not at design-time but at run-time

Does not help anyone identify the problem.  In the first case, what was the error, in the second case was there 1. An error occured, if so which?
2. Not the right results.
3. Smoke coming out of the monitor

This is not encouraged here at EE.  We are all here to share ideas.

Having said that, can you post you existing code and what you are trying to achieve.

When I have a problem like this I will put the sql statement into a string variable so that I can see that is looks the way I think it will...

Dim sqlStr as string

sqlstr = "select Est_No,Est_Notes,Est_Opening_Date,Est_Opening_Location,Est_Opening_Time,Est_Value from tblEstInfo Where Est_No ='" & txtEstNo.Text & "'"

After this statement I will look at the value of sqlstr, which should be something like:
select Est_No,Est_Notes,Est_Opening_Date,Est_Opening_Location,Est_Opening_Time,Est_Value from tblEstInfo Where Est_No ='03-01'

I have found this to be helpful in identifying minor syntax errors.
