Hi there  waddah:


  i´ve used and tested this procedure on Windows 2000 and 2003:


- - - - Below the Inherits statement, enter the following:

Private strOLEDB_ConnectionString As String = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0; Data Source =C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\Samples\Nortwind.mdb;"       - - - -  Just make sure the path is the correct one

Private cnOLEDB As New Oledb.OleDbConnection(strOLEDB_ConnectionString)



Private daCustomers As New Oledb.OleDbDataAdapter( "Select * from Customers",cnOLEDB)

Private cbCustomers As New Oledb.Oledb.CommandBuilder(daCustomers)

Private dsExamples As New DataSet("dsExamples")


- - - In a defined procedure load the data from your DB


Private Sub mnuOLEDB_ LoadData_Click ( )
daCustomers.Fill ( dsExamples, "Customers")

Dim dcCustomerID As DataColumn=dsExamples.Tables("Customers").Columns("CustomerID")

dsExamples.Relations.Add("CustOrders",dcCustomerID,dcOrderCustID)
