He may not have the components installed to have the data controls in his tool box.

pibka,

I would suggest you do not use ADO controls, but rather use ADO to establish your connection(s) and use the recordset and command objects to retrieve data and execute your SQL code.

If u r using VB6, right click on controls toolbar and select 'components' from popup menu, components list will be appear. checkmark Microsoft ActiveX Data Control, and then click OK button. ADO control will appear on controls toolbars. Click on it and draw on form. Do it for as many times as u need controls.

Thanks fsaims, I wasn't sitting in front of the IDE and couldn't remember where to tell him to go to install the component.
