Hello,

Any help on this would be hugely appreciated. I'm trying to convert an Old Access Database over to VB.NET and it's been a while since using VB.NET The backend is a .MDB (for now).

I have the following code I wish to convert.. All the form items are the same - names etc... I do have an option group on both forms which I would like to still pull the case from - I'm pretty sure this is possible in .NET?

The trickier part as I'm aware of will be when the user clicks the item that populates in the listbox, how to load the form as unlike access, the textboxes do not have control sources.


Thanks so much!!!
***Code to Populate List Box On Search Form***

Dim dB As DAO.Database

Dim rS As DAO.Recordset

Dim sSQL As String

 

Set dB = CurrentDb

 

sSQL = ""

sSQL = sSQL & "SELECT [PendingClaimNum], Last, First, DatePending, Custodian, PendingID     "

sSQL = sSQL & "FROM [Pending] "

 

Select Case Me.fraCriteriaType.Value

    Case 1

        sSQL = sSQL & "WHERE [PendingClaimNum]  = '" & Me.txtClmNo & "'"

    Case 2

        If IsNull(Me.txtFirstName) Then

            sSQL = sSQL & "WHERE Last LIKE '" & Me.txtLastName & "'"

        Else

            sSQL = sSQL & "WHERE Last LIKE'" & Me.txtLastName & "' AND First LIKE '" & Me.txtFirstName & "'"

        End If

    Case 3

        sSQL = sSQL & "WHERE DatePending = '" & Me.txtDate & "'"

        

    Case 4

        sSQL = sSQL & "WHERE Custodian = '" & Me.cboSpecialist.Value & "' " & "And IsNull(DateClosed) " & " And PendingStatus = 'Pending' "

    'Case 5

        'sSQL = sSQL & "WHERE ProvName LIKE '" & Me.txtProvider & "'"

    'Case 6

        'sSQL = sSQL & "WHERE ProvNum LIKE '" & Me.providernum & "'"

End Select

 

sSQL = sSQL & " ORDER BY [DatePending] ASC"

 

Me.lstResults.RowSource = sSQL

If Me.lstResults.ListCount = 0 Then

    MsgBox "Your search did not find a match"

 

end if

end sub

 

 

 

***Code To Open Result***

 

Dim stDocName As String

Dim stLinkCriteria As String

 

On Error GoTo Err_Open_Click

 

stDocName = "Pending"

stLinkCriteria = "[PendingID]=" & Me.lstResults.Column(5)

DoCmd.OpenForm stDocName, , , stLinkCriteria

 

Exit_Open_Click:

    Exit Sub

 

Err_Open_Click:

    MsgBox Err.Description

    Resume Exit_Open_Click

I would love to provide help, but I don't really see a specific question.  Are you looking for a way to use ADO.NET, create form logic, form design, ...?

Okay,

Specifically I'm trying to populate a ListView with multiple columns and then have the end user be able to select a record the query pulled and have it open record in form view.... I've made a bit of progress but I'm having problems with the multiple columns in the listview - datagrid works but i can't see how the user can select a record and open it from this view.

Here is what i have for code:


 Private Sub cmdSearch_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles cmdSearch.Click

        Dim OptControlArray() As Control = {OptName, OptClaimNo, OptDate, OptCustodian}
        Dim sConnectionString, sSQL As String

        sConnectionString = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=C:\Documents and Settings\diw07\My Documents\Daily Backups\phone memo backend.mdb"
        sSQL = "SELECT PendingID, PendingClaimNum, Last, First, DatePending, Custodian, [Pending].[PendingClaimNum] & ' ' & [Pending].[Last] & ' ' & [Pending].[First] & ' ' & [Pending].[DatePending] & ' ' & [Pending].[Custodian] As Row FROM Pending WHERE Last Like '" & txtLastName.Text & "'"
        'sSQL = "SELECT PendingClaimNum, Last, First, DatePending, Custodian FROM Pending WHERE Last Like '" & txtLastName.Text & "'"


        Dim conn As New System.Data.OleDb.OleDbConnection(sConnectionString)
        Dim cmd As New System.Data.OleDb.OleDbCommand(sSQL, conn)
        Dim dr As System.Data.OleDb.OleDbDataReader
        conn.Open()
        Dim dat As OleDbDataAdapter = New OleDbDataAdapter(sSQL, conn)
        Dim dt As New DataSet()
        dat.Fill(dt, "Pending")
        lstResults.DataSource = dt.Tables("Pending").DefaultView
        lstResults.DisplayMember = "Row"
        lstResults.ValueMember = "PendingID"
        conn.Close()


    End Sub

1) ASP.NET or WinForms?

2) 1.1., 2.0, 3.5?
