I am trying to make a database that runs together with Access on Visual Basic....

I used the Wizard in VB and it has made everything for me, but now in the Document Form, i want to show results from a form in Access....

How do i do that, and according to what is clicked on the main form, the appropriate thing will come up.....

Please help me.....

Well you cannot use access forms in VB.
Access provides both back-end (tables, queries) and front-end (forms, reports)
When you create a program using VB you are programming the front end that is replacing Access front end and use Access as an back-end only.
So you pretty much going to manually copy all the controls and logic from Access forms into VB forms.
