Removing row from Flexgrid

Removing row from Flexgrid

Removing row from Flexgrid

I'm using VB6 and taking data from a database using recordsets and placing the data in a flexgrid. For example, I have 3 columns in it...class, grade, date. A person could have taken the same class multiple times. These occurences are in the database. What I'd like to do is place only the latest date, grade and class of a specific class in the grid. ANy ideas???

RE: Removing row from Flexgrid

your best bet is to pick up a book on SQL. You need to use some functions of SQL to select that data. You can dynamically set the recordset of a data control which allows you to customize the recordset using SQL. In other words using SQL allows you to select records from the database where certain criteria are met. You are currently selecting all the records which is why you see the duplicates. An SQL statement looks like this:

"select * from stats where studentID = '524-42-9587'"

using this statement your record set would contain only the records that have a Student ID or 524-42-9587. It isn't that hard to incorporate SQL statements into VB. I recommend these 2 books both published by Sams Publishing
