Hi

How do I change the following codes to get all the table names, columns and column data types and then display the results in a DataGridView

    Function GetTableRelationships(ByVal sDataBase As String)
        Try
            'Connect to the Northwind database in SQL Server.
            'Be sure to use an account that has permission to list tables.
            'cn.ConnectionString = "Provider=SQLOLEDB;Data Source=server;User ID=<username>;Password=<strong password>;Initial Catalog=Northwind"

            Dim strConnection As String = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=" & sDataBase
            Dim cn As New OleDbConnection(strConnection)


            Dim dt As DataTable

            dt = cn.GetOleDbSchemaTable(System.Data.OleDb.OleDbSchemaGuid.Foreign_Keys, _
            New Object() {Nothing, Nothing, Nothing, "TABLE"})

            DataGridView1.DataSource = dt
        Catch
            frmR.TopMost = False
            Me.TopMost = False
            MsgBox("There was an error! " & Err.Description & ".")
            frmR.TopMost = True
            Me.TopMost = True
        End Try


    End Function
