    I've got 2 databases... we'll call them a and b. I'm in 'a' and I want
    my DAO.Database object to be database 'b' how do i set my object to
    that database?


    Here's some of my code:

    Dim dbs As DAO.Database
    Dim rs As DAO.Recordset

    Set dbs = __________
    Set rs = dbs.OpenRecordSet(qOfferings_Display)



    I'm just an intern trying to learn (never delt with DAO stuff
    before).... Thanks for the help.

    You need to use the OpenDatabase method to return a reference to the other
    database. The query name then needs to be delimited with quotes when
    establishing the recordset:

    Dim dbs As DAO.Database
    Dim rs As DAO.Recordset

    Set dbs = OpenDatabase("C:\SomeFolder\SomeSubfolder\b.mdb")
    Set rs = dbs.OpenRecordSet("qOfferings_Display")

    Check out the OpenRecordset method in Help as you might need to specify the
    type of recordset as the second argument depending on what you want to do
    with it.
