VB form to MS Access

Posted 30 June 2009 - 08:41 AM

I know you can link an Access DB to your VB project and get all the data in your form, but can you take a pre-designed VB form and import to Access, then link it to your tables once it's there? If it is possible, how would I go about doing it?

Not sure if this should go in the .NET forum or the Databases forum, so mods please move this as you see fit.

So you want to make a VB.NET form and embed it into the Access file?

Not really. The proper way would be to have the .NET form access the database, and not the database access the .NET form.

Damn. Is there any way to maybe copy the objects on the form, rather than the form itself, and put them onto an Access form? For some reason the system where I work still has Access 97, and the form designer is really awkward. Things dont snap to the position of other objects like in VB.

I don't think you can get behind the code in the form. It's locked down pretty tight not to mention then you would need a way to import the .NET framework or reference from inside Access.
