Tree-view in Access

Hi Experts,

Does MS Access have a tree-view control, sort of file manager, where I can have expandable/collapsible nodes that I can build either by a loop or a recordset.

Finally, if the user highlights a node and clicks a button, the button can know which node is highlighted. Sort of where each node would have a label and a hidden ID and the button can read the ID.

If no such control is available in MS Access can anyone recommend something?

Thank you

Yes ...

Freeware Instant Treeview (Scroll down to bottom  of the page until you get to Access Tools)

Comes with db that has jump start example and an online tutorial. It's very cool.

I actually like the Treeview Blog website.  The creator walks you through the basics all the way to the complex in 7 steps.

The Treeview activeX control is not being ported to 64-bit and may not work with A2013 32-bit.  Check if it matters to you.

I found this treeview that is built with VBA and so is not an add-in.

Interesting that the JLP TV has not been tested in A2013:

Access 2003
Access 2010 (32 bit)
Access 2010 (64 bit)

However, I just tested in 2013 and it seems to work just fine.
