    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.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
