Hi! I have an app which uses an adoDataSet to connect to an Excel or an Access file (choosen by user), but I wanna now if there's a way to retrieve the sheet's (XLS) name, or the table's name (MDB).
Tried to do it through property CommandText, making a reference to it as an array, but obviously, it was wrong.

I'll appreciate any help =)

hi ,
if i don't misunderstood , you wanna get tables name in a MDB file if so , use an adoconnection , set the 'adoconnection.connectionstring' and set your adodataset's connection to the adoconnection , place a memo and then try this code :

adoconnection1.GetTableNames(memo1.Lines,False);

let me know if you have any prob.
