I cannot find ADO Control

P: 17
Hi all,
I am new to Vb. Can anybody help me in finding ADO control. I know that to insert an ADO control in a form we have to go to the Components and then select Microsoft ActiveX Data Control 6. But I cannot find it in my application. So I request you to please help me.

If you open up the Toolbox in design view, there should be an option (bottom right) called More Controls. This should include every control available to you. If it's not there you need to install it.

Shogun,
From your form's Design View goto Insert _ ActiveX Control.

I'm not sure what you mean. If you want instructions on how to register an ActiveX library, then they are found in this thread already (Post #2). If you are asking where to source a specific library that you don't have, then you can try posting a question on it, but I can't guarantee you'll get a good answer to that one. It's not really what we're about, though we'll help if we can.

This is an MS Access forum, Shogun! Advice given here pertains to Access and VBA, not Visual Basic 4!

Shogun,
It seems you may have posted this in Access by mistake.
If you like, I can move it over to the VB forum for you?
Just let me know.

Ohhps! I really made a mistake here and posted on the wrong place! Well NeoPa, there's no need to move the post, I'll take a look at the VB forum. Thank you guys!

No problem.
I think I'll lock this thread then.
