Using memory resident ADO recordsets

Hi all,

I have been using memory resident ADO recordsets for a while in a Parent/Child relationship.  Now for the question:

Is it possible to have one parent with a child and have the child have children?  In other words, grandparent/parent/child relationship.

Here is code I am trying to play with:

           Set rsItems = New ADODB.Recordset
           Set rsItemsDtl = New ADODB.Recordset
           Set rsItemsInvDtl = New ADODB.Recordset
           rsItems.ActiveConnection = "provider=msdatashape;data provider=none;"
           rsItems.Open " SHAPE APPEND" & _
                " New adVarChar(40) as CustNbr, New adVarChar(100) as CustName, New adCurrency as YTD," & _
                " New adCurrency as LYYTD, New adCurrency as LY," & _
                " ((SHAPE APPEND New adVarChar(10) as chCustNbr," & _
                " New adVarChar(40) as chProductNbr, New adVarChar(100) as chProductDesc, New adVarChar(30) as chSize," & _
                " New adVarChar(10) as chMfg, New adVarChar(10) as chUnit, New adInteger as chQty," & _
                " New adCurrency as chYTD, New adInteger as chLYtdQty, New adCurrency as chLYYTD," & _
                " New adInteger as chLyQty, New adCurrency as chLY, New adVarChar(100) as chCustProd," & _
                " ((SHAPE APPEND New adVarChar(40) as chIDCustProd, New adVarChar(10) as chIDInvNbr," & _
                " New adDate as chIDInvDate, New adInteger as chIDQty, New adCurrency as chIDInvAmt)" & _
                " RELATE chCustProd to chIDCustProd) AS Child)" & _
                " RELATE CustNbr to chCustNbr) AS Child" _
                , , adOpenDynamic, adLockOptimistic

I know that I am not doing this correctly.

When answering, please provide an example.

looks looks like you have the code correct:

however, you named both levels "Child", possibly that makes it a problem.
possibly, using adOpenStatis instead of adOpenDynamic helps?

Sorry, I don't have VB on this computer...

I was not using "GrandChild" in the code.

Thanks for your help.
