hi,

How do you use the adodc1.recordset.find or something like that in VB6 to search the table, for the users input on a textbox ?

I use the ADODB library, but is should be the same:

Dim rst As ADODB.Recordset
Set rst = New ADODB.Recordset

rst.Open "Your SQL", YourConnection

rst.Find, "SomeField= SomeValue"

However, you might be better off with a filtered recordset:

rst.Open "SELECT * FROM SomeTable WHERE SomeField=SomeValue", YourConnection

To reflect user input:

rst.Open "SELECT * FROM SomeTable WHERE SomeField=" & Me.YourTextbox, YourConnection

If "SomeField" is a Text value:

rst.Open "SELECT * FROM SomeTable WHERE SomeField='" & Me.YourTextbox & "'", YourConnection

dim CN as adodb.connection
the YourConnection would be CN

the Object ADODC as you have shown has a recordset that you use the find method...
you must move to the first row of the recordset...

ADODC.Recordset.MoveFirst
ADODC.Recordset.Find "FieldName = '" & trim(txtField.Text) & "' "

Private Sub SearchData()

IF ADODC.Recordset.RecordCount = 0 then exit sub
ADODC.Recordset.MoveFirst
ADODC.Recordset.Find "FieldName = '" & trim(txtField.Text) & "' "

if ADODC.Recordset.EOF then
   MsgBox "No Find for You !!", vbInformation + vbOKOnly, "Seinfield Messages"
End If       

End Sub
