Open the Access query editor in SQL view.  Paste in the SQL string and run the query.  Do you get any errors?  Does it prompt for a variable?

Does BillSummary take any arguments?

Thanks for reply
No, Not getting any error, And no any prompt for variable..?
getting all data,
and this is the query,  BillSummary is not table but query in DB (Ms Access)
SELECT DISTINCT BillDtl.BillNo AS Invo_No, CFT_NEW.Date_Invo, BillDtl.NetAmt AS Net_Amt, BillDtl.PkgChg AS Pkg_Chg, BillDtl.PkgAmt AS Pkg_Amt, BillDtl.Commission AS Comison, BillDtl.TaxAmt AS Tax_Amt, BillDtl.Loading, BillDtl.DiscOn, BillDtl.DiscAmt, BillDtl.GrandTTL, BillDtl.BndlTTL, CFT_NEW.CustName
FROM BillDtl, CFT_NEW
WHERE BillDtl.BillNo=CFT_NEW.InvoNo;

Open in new window

and this is from VB code..as i mention in my question
"SELECT Invo_No,Date_Invo,Net_Amt,Pkg_Chg,Pkg_Amt,Comison,Tax_Amt,Loading,DiscOn FROM BillSumry"

What happens if you use Select *?
Also are you sure about the name of the query BillSumry?

FROM BillDtl, CFT_NEW
is old fashioned syntax and in an Access query results in a Cartesian Product which among other issues is always not updateable.

Make the join specific by changing the where clause to a join.

FROM BillDtl Inner Join CFT_NEW ON BillDtl.BillNo = CFT_NEW.InvoNo;
