I'm new to database programming in visual basic I'm in need of some help performing a search. Here's what I would like to do:
I have a form with a textbox and a command button, I would like to make it so that a user can input the name of a person (as this is a customer DB) and have the program perform a search of all records and return those records with the name specified. (I would like to attempt to search through records when the button is clicked)
If possible I would like to use the Data control to aide in the search as I'm not real keen on the ADO control yet. I've tried using the .seek and .find first properties of the data control with no success... I think I've got all required data in the database though to perform a search (ie: Fields to index & a primary key)
As I understand, you also need a data grid control to output results. Is this true?
Any help is greatly appreciated!
