Newbie question

I am using VB6 with CR8 (Access and Jet3.51)

The question is:  Is it possible to use a VB object as a datasource instead of a recordset?

The problem is:  I have an application that collects examination data.  There are about 100 fields, so we set the database up with 2 columns in the detail table(child table), 'field_id' and 'field_value'.  In the application, the object is loaded and the screen is populated from that object.  I want to be able to just pass the object to Crystal rather than requerying the database.

Is this possible?

Thanks in advance,
