Without letting admin/user go to database window, I want table to be selected from a list box and viewed via a click on PreviewTable button (list box and button are done).

As you know RunSQL wouldn't work for Select queries.  Do you know how to display a table directly from a form?

Dim sqlStr As String                     \
sqlStr = "Select * From site"         |   this wouldn't work
DoCmd.RunSQL sqlStr                  /

Teach me how it is done.

Thanks,

Mike

hi Mike :)

Do you mean open the table in Normal view?

DoCmd.OpenTable "Employees", acViewNormal, acEdit


from the help...

  acViewDesign
acViewNormal (default)
acViewPreview

  acViewNormal opens the table in Datasheet view.
  If you leave this argument blank, the default constant
(acViewNormal) is assumed.

datamode One of the following intrinsic constants:
  acAdd
acEdit (default)
acReadOnly
  If you leave this argument blank, the default constant (acEdit) is assumed.


regards,

John

Dim adoCN As New ADODB.Connection
Dim adoRS As New ADODB.Recordset
Dim strTableName as String
Dim strSQL as String

adoCN.ConnectionString = CurrentProject.Connection
adoCN.Open

strSQL = "SELECT * FROM " & strTableName

adoRS.Open strSQL, adoCN, adOpenDynamic, adLockOptimistic

Do While adoRS.EOF = False
    Debug.Print adoRS(0)  'Prints the first Field value
    Debug.Print adoRS(1)  'Prints the second Field value
    'etc etc
    adoRS.MoveNext
Loop

Set adoRS = Nothing
Set adoCN = Nothing

'Don't forget to set a reference to "Microsoft ActiveX Data Objects 2.7 Library" or which ever version is the latest  on your PC.......
'Assuming strTableName holds the table name selected from the list box

Well, I thought I pasted my comment twice....never mind.....

The Row Source Property of the list box will contain the following query to show list of user tables available in the current database......

SELECT MSysObjects.Id, MSysObjects.Name FROM MSysObjects WHERE Type=1 And Flags=0 ORDER BY Name;

My pleasure Mike, glad I could help kickstart you.. now for a bit of sleep :-)

considering how simple that was it barely seems reasonable to take 500pts for it, but I don't have any change on me! :-o

Gnite,
