How can I clear the child nodes below a given parent node in a treeview control using vba. I know how to clear all the nodes in a treeview using:

mObjTreeView.Nodes.Clear

Open in new window


I've tried code:

mObjTreeView.Nodes(mObjParent.Index).Nodes.Clear

Open in new window


but it won't compile. Is the syntax wrong or can I just not do what I'm trying to do so simply? If I need a sub-routine, can anyone get me started?

Which Treeview are you using? There are several, and some of them are 3rd party controls.

Here's how to clear the ChildNodes of the VBA treeview:

Note also that the Treeview is not a verfied control in Access, therefore you may experience some odd issues.

I'm using the TreeView Windows Common control. The code you pointed me to works fine, although I've modified it to identify the parent node via its index.

Thanks

yup works fine but that code should remove nodes from database as well... What the point other way?
