I have the entire bible saved in an access database by verse.  There are 31,150 total verses stored in records. The database is designed as follows:
Table = "Bible"
Book_Name = "Text format"
Chapter = "Integer format"
Verse = "Integer format"

How can I programmitcally generate text in a treeview control with Book_Name displayed as a Node and the Chapters displayed as Subnodes.  Heres an attempt of what I'm looking for:

Genesis
     |___1
     |___2
     |___3
     |___4
Exodus
     |___1
     |___2
     |___3
     |___4

Etc.

Each book number will require its own key to be able to be related in the treeview. This key cannot be numeric, but alpha-numeric.

For example,  

  Genesis (Key G1)
  Exodus (Key E1)
  Mark (Key M1)

Each chapter will then require this key to be related in the tv.
 
  Genesis Chapter 1 (Related to G1)  key = vG1
  Genesis Chapter 2 (Related to G1)  key = vG2
  ....

Each verse will then need to be related to the above

  Genesis Verse 1 (Related to vG1)
  Genesis Verse 2 (Related to vG2)


Thus, your database will need an extra field to hold the key. In my database (which does the same) i have a table with the parent keys - which is read to create the parent nodes, then a table to hold the data with a field for the key - to reference the parent. I extract the data from the parent key table first, and assign the key - the loop through the data table and add the items one key at a time.

The syntac to add items to the tree view is as follows:

Parent Node
     - Child 1
           - Child 2

Parent Node  tv.Nodes.Add , , parentKey, description
Child 1 Node    tv.Nodes.Add parentKey, tvwChild, childKey, description
Child 2 Node    tv.Nodes.Add ChildKey, tvwChild, child2Key, description

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

Add a treeview control to your form and name it tv. Paste the below to see a sample of what i am talking about:

Private Sub Form_Load()

'Add parent nodes
tv.Nodes.Add , , "g1", "Genesis"
tv.Nodes.Add , , "e1", "Exdoses"
tv.Nodes.Add , , "m1", "Mark"

'Add child items
tv.Nodes.Add "g1", tvwChild, "vg1", "Chapter 1"
tv.Nodes.Add "g1", tvwChild, "vg2", "Chapter 2"
tv.Nodes.Add "e1", tvwChild, "ve1", "Chapter 1"
tv.Nodes.Add "e1", tvwChild, "ve2", "Chapter 2"
tv.Nodes.Add "m1", tvwChild, "vm1", "Chapter 1"
tv.Nodes.Add "m1", tvwChild, "vm2", "Chapter 2"

'Add child items
tv.Nodes.Add "vg1", tvwChild, , "verse 1"
tv.Nodes.Add "vg2", tvwChild, , "verse 2"
tv.Nodes.Add "ve1", tvwChild, , "verse 1"
tv.Nodes.Add "ve2", tvwChild, , "verse 2"
tv.Nodes.Add "vm1", tvwChild, , "verse 1"
tv.Nodes.Add "vm2", tvwChild, , "verse 2"

End Sub

This is exactly the code I needed bingie!  Do you know how to add pictures to the treeview control? Also, how do I navigate to a particular recordset when the user clicks on a chapter or verse?
