How to populate unbound controls...

I know how to populate individual controls on a form.  However, how do I populate a form set as a datasheet while keeping it unbound?

Also, how do I provide data to a graph while keeping it unbound?

I should note that the datasheet does not require the ability to Add, Edit, or Delete records.  Only view.

NO_CARRIER,

It is possible to create an unbound form in datasheet view, however you cannot add "rows" of data (only a single line will show).

You can insert values into the controls in an unbound datasheet from either a seperate or mainform housing the datasheet.  Again, you will only see one unbound row, and cannot add "records".


The approach overall does not make sense.

If you need to view multiple records, without the ability to add/edit/delete, you should create a *bound* datasheet with the AllowEdits, AllowAdditions and AllowDeletions properties set to FALSE.

NO_CARRIER,

I'm with mbizup, why not just bind the form, just for this one process?

Also, it would help greatly if you explained to us exactly what you are trying to accomplish with this system.

The form is currently bound.  My only worry is that there are 40+ users that will be viewing this form throughout the day (without modifying any data, just to view data in the same form), using a MS-Access backend.  I would rather not having 40 connections to the back end just sitting there idle if it is not necessary.  But if this is the proper solution I will leave the form as is.
