Yes I know there are formums out there for this but they`re Greek to me ( inhabited by experienced programmers for most part ). I am following page 306 in "VB6 Database Programming for Dummies" by Richard Mansfield. Now on P308 ( Chap18 ) in attempt to open VB6 Query Designer. Option 2 which reads ... ..."Choose View ==> Data View Window" I do not have this option under View. Any ideas from someone with some VB exp. greatly appreciated.
