datagridview1
textbox =  fldCmfrnum


I have 2 situations.
I have a database table thats houses 3.4 mil + records

I DO NOT need the datagrid to load with all the data when the form opens or as you navigate through records.

I would like the datagridview1 to filter via a Textbox called   "txtCmfrnum"

as a person types in the textbox the datagridview1 filters to show the results...

tblXref_Bindingsource
is the control the datagridview is bound to...

Thanks

I dont think its a good idea to filter along as the user types given the numnber of records. I would suggest to use a button to invoke the search once the search string has been entered.

You would have to connect to database and load the results filtered by the criteria each time user presses a key, if you follow your idea. If you follow my idea, you would connect to the DB and get results every time user presses Load button.

code cruiser, I'm in the "Search Criteria Builder" after placing my dataset on the form...
trying to create a parameterized query to do a  "start with" wildcard search.

from this reference:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-US/library/hbsty6z7(v=VS.80).aspx


This will but need: a wild card syntax for "Starts With" search
SELECT MFRNUM, MFRNAME, WWGMFRNUM, WWGMFRNAME, WWGDESC, ITEM, COMMENTS, REDBOOKNUM, XREF, SPIN, RICHTEXT FROM dbo.SapData
WHERE MFRNUM = ?

SELECT MFRNUM, MFRNAME, WWGMFRNUM, WWGMFRNAME, WWGDESC, ITEM, COMMENTS, REDBOOKNUM, XREF, SPIN, RICHTEXT FROM dbo.SapData
WHERE MFRNUM = '? & *'
but will not work  !


Thanks'

Yeah then above syntax should work. Have you tried it?

For ends with

Where MFRNum Like '%N'

For anywere

Where MFRNum Like '%N%'

If you need to supply the value, from a textbox for example, then

Where MFRNum Like '" & txtFilter.Text & "%'"
