VB4 DAO: How to specify index?

Post by Jerry Leec » Wed, 09 Oct 1996 04:00:00

The Index property is only available for table objects, and not dynaset
or snapshot objects.  If you want your data displayed in a specific
order use the ORDER BY clause on your SQL statement.  The DAO will
automatically use any existing indexes to sort the data as requested.

Hope this helps.

VB4 DAO: How to specify index?

Post by Raymond Poo » Thu, 10 Oct 1996 04:00:00

Does anyone know of a way in specifying table index for DAO Data Control
recordsets in VB4? I have tried the following with little success:

(Data1 is a Data Control object on the form)
Data1.RecordSource = "SELECT * FROM ......."
Data1.Recordset.Index = "Schedule Order" (Index has been defined for that

VB4 gave me the message "feature not available" (very helpful) and no help
topic is present.

I know I can do it in code the conventional way, but does it mean that
index property is not available in a MS Data Control object? Help

1. UGRGENT: VB4 DAO - Error 31037 Error Loading from File DAO Error 3251

This is the trapable error numbers that occur when one form attempts to
load another form.  The functions work fine on the development machines but
not on an end user's machine.  When the call is made to make the second
form visible or show, the obove messages can be trapped.  However, the form
that is to be loaded, the Form_Load event is never fired off.  Where is
this error occurring.  The form being loaded does have data controls, APEX
True DBGrid 4, DBCombo boxes.  I'm exhausted trying to find the offending
section of code!!

Any suggestions
