Hi Experts,

This is the first form (.scx)I have created myself to manipulate data, so sorry for my ignorance.  I used the wizard to create the form.  And it asked for the underlying data so every time I load the form now the data environment shows the table.  I want to change the data environment depending on the information in another variable.  I know I can delete the file from the data environment and then change the field names to not reference the file. The question is how to load the proper data environment into the form. I have a company variable that changes when the user goes to that company information.  So I want to load the relevant data environment (lets call them company1 and company2) for the specific company variable.  I should add that I am using VFP 6.0.  Thanks for your help.

adding use tablename to the form's Load event seemed to do the trick.  Let me know if this is the wrong way to go

this is okay. If you want to stay with the data environment, it also has a code section behind the visual canvas of table and view objects, there is a OpenTables method made for opening tables.

Bye, Olaf.
