Datasheet question

Datasheet question

Datasheet question

(OP)
Hello,

Is there any way of setting the record source for a form in datasheet view through code. I know how to 'set' the record source, but the problem is that I want to change the recordset completely - new fields, different number of fields... Is there any way of doing this without writing code that does the whole form from scratch every time?

Any good (free) active-x controls that might handle something like this?

Thanks,
Mats

RE: Datasheet question

No.
Make another form and have several if need be.
Otherwise, yes you will be writing a database application from scratch.

Thanks,

I actually figured out a way to make it work like I want it to

Inputsub is a subform to the form calling my sub.
Fldgrup is a table with fieldnames and corresponding groupnames.

This procedure shows the rows in the selected group and hides the rest.
(there is actually a bug in it, but I havent yet figured it out, it leaves some fields showing when they should be hidden by the code...)

            Dim rst As Recordset
            Dim str As String
            Dim i As Integer
            
            str = "SELECT Field FROM FldGroup WHERE FldGroup.Group='" & Combo2 & "'"
            Set rst = CurrentDb.OpenRecordset(str, dbOpenSnapshot)
            rst.MoveFirst
            
            i = 0
            Do Until rst.EOF = True
                Do Until i = InputSub.Form.Count - 1
                If InputSub(i).Name = rst(0) Then
                InputSub(i).ColumnHidden = False
                i = i + 1
                Exit Do
                Else
                InputSub(i).ColumnHidden = True
                i = i + 1
                End If
                Loop
                rst.MoveNext
            Loop
