Hi

I having some problems with a relationship connection, i can only get it to write the first connection/selecting output.

What i want it to make a list of things from 2 tables.

I have the following code.
default.aspx
<%@ Page Language="VB" AutoEventWireup="false" CodeFile="Default.aspx.vb" Inherits="_Default" %>

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head runat="server">
    <title></title>
</head>
<body>
    <form id="form1" runat="server">
    <div>
    <asp:Label ID="lblRelation" runat="server" Text="Label"></asp:Label>
    </div>
    </form>
</body>
</html>

Open in new window


Then i have these to codebehind and its the same problem i get, i get same output with codebehind 1 and codebehind 2.

default.aspx.vb
Imports System.Data
Imports System.Data.OleDb
Imports System.IO
Public Class _default
    Inherits System.Web.UI.Page
    Dim connStr As String = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=" & Server.MapPath("App_Data/relationship.mdb")
    Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Load
        If (Not IsPostBack) Then
            Dim RowTitle As DataRow
            Dim RowSubline As DataRow
            Dim cmd As New OleDbCommand("select * from Table_1", New OleDbConnection(connStr))
            Dim myAdapter As New OleDbDataAdapter(cmd)
            Dim myDataSet As New DataSet()             'myAccessConnection.Open()   Since you are using Adapter, don't need to use this             
            myAdapter.Fill(myDataSet, "Table_1")
            myAdapter.SelectCommand = New OleDbCommand("select * from Table_2", New OleDbConnection(connStr))
            myAdapter.Fill(myDataSet, "Table_2")
            myDataSet.Relations.Add("Table1_Table2", myDataSet.Tables("Table_1").Columns("tbl_12_kat_id"), myDataSet.Tables("Table_2").Columns("tbl_12_kat_id"))
            For Each RowTitle In myDataSet.Tables("Table_1").Rows
                lblRelation.Text &= RowTitle("tbl_1_text")
                For Each RowSubline In RowTitle.GetChildRows("Table1_Table_2")
                    lblRelation.Text &= "<br />" & RowSubline("tbl_2_text")
                Next
            Next
        End If
    End Sub
End Class

Open in new window

        'relating tables
        relation = New DataRelation("Table_1_Table_2", table1Column, table2Column)
        'assign relation to dataset
        myDataSet.Relations.Add(relation)

        For Each RowTitle In myDataSet.Tables("Table_1").Rows
            lblRelation.Text &= RowTitle("tbl_1_text")
            For Each RowSubline In RowTitle.GetChildRows("Table1_Table_2")

Hi
I found an usefull ex. and it almost work as i want it to
Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Load

        Dim custAdapter As OleDbDataAdapter = New OleDbDataAdapter("select * from Table_1", myAccessConnection)

        Dim ordAdapter As OleDbDataAdapter = New OleDbDataAdapter("select * from Table_2", myAccessConnection)

        Dim customerOrders As DataSet = New DataSet()
        custAdapter.Fill(customerOrders, "Table_1")
        ordAdapter.Fill(customerOrders, "Table_2")

        Dim relation As DataRelation = _
          customerOrders.Relations.Add("CustOrders", _
          customerOrders.Tables("Table_1").Columns("tbl_12_kat_id"), _
          customerOrders.Tables("Table_2").Columns("tbl_12_kat_id"))

        Dim pRow, cRow As DataRow
        For Each pRow In customerOrders.Tables("Table_1").Rows
            Response.Write(pRow("tbl_1_text").ToString() & "<br />")

            For Each cRow In pRow.GetChildRows(relation)
                Response.Write(vbTab & cRow("tbl_2_text").ToString() & "<br />")
            Next
        Next

    End Sub

Open in new window


If i use this code i get this in the output.
Kat 1
dette er en lille
dette jjsdjfk
gdgjsdfd
Kat 2
dette er emn t
dette er en
Kat 3
hfgdgyfgasdfn
Kat 4
Kat 5

My question is now, how do i get an ekstra <br /> tag between the Kat, if there is no ekstra recorde so i get this
Kat 1
dette er en lille
dette jjsdjfk
gdgjsdfd

Kat 2
dette er emn t
dette er en

Kat 3
hfgdgyfgasdfn

Kat 4

Kat 5

And how can i hide the Kat's where there is no records in !?
So i will end up with

Kat 1
dette er en lille
dette jjsdjfk
gdgjsdfd

Kat 2
dette er emn t
dette er en

Kat 3
hfgdgyfgasdfn

Then this all depends on what approach you take and what the exact output will be.

With your code, you would have to detect when the "Kat" changes and inset another "<br>"
This may be a simple thing to do, but since my skillset revolves around MS Access, I would use a slightly different approach.
(Note, the code is a bit sloppy, but is does produce the desired output)
I will presume here that the output you are looking for here is HTML...


Examine this sample *carefully*
1. I creates an output table ("tblList")
2. It creates two HTML files in the root of your C: drive.  One from the Access OutputTo command, the other from the raw HTML built from the loop

Again, I will admit that the code is a bit sloppy and probably inefficient, (because I threw it together quickly) but it produces the desired output.

And again, finally, there may very well be a one line fix to make the code you posted here do the same thing, but I don't know how that would be structured.
:-(

In any event, have fun playing with this sample.
(I even created a Report that simulates the desired output, and I display the HTML raw string on the form, for reference)
;-)

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

Remember, you have asked a question that *requires* that you be fairly well versed in VBA...
In other words, there is no "simple" way to do what you are asking.

My post does as you have requesting in three ways...
This is basically a one to many relationship, (this can be represented in a report as well)

Perhaps you could explain why this is needed?
