    Unanswered: Unbound forms? How to?

    I would like to create an unbound form using DAO. So for me to create an unbound form. I would create a form without choosing a table, open a DAO recordset and then set the ControlSource of the objects on the form to that recordset like follows?

    Dim rs as DAO.Recordset

    set rs = new DAO.Recordset

    Set rs = database.OpenRecordset(strSQL, RecordsetType, RecordsetOptions, LockType)

    set TextBox.ControlSource = rs

    Thank you for any help.

    If the form is unbound so are the controls in which case you will have to assign the values from your recordset to each of the controls.


    me.text1 = myRS("Property Name")
    me.text2 = myRS("Address Line 1")

    or you could try specifying the record source of the form before the control source of each object.
