Views Append Method Example (VB)

The following code demonstrates how to use a Command object and the Views collection Append method to create a new view in the underlying data source.

' BeginCreateViewVB  
Sub Main()  
    On Error GoTo CreateViewError  

    Dim cmd As New ADODB.Command  
    Dim cat As New ADOX.Catalog  

    ' Open the Catalog  
    cat.ActiveConnection = _  
        "Provider='Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0';" & _  
        "Data Source='Northwind.mdb';"  

    ' Create the command representing the view.  
    cmd.CommandText = "Select * From Customers"  

    ' Create the new View  
    cat.Views.Append "AllCustomers", cmd  

    'Clean up  
    Set cat.ActiveConnection = Nothing  
    Set cat = Nothing  
    Set cmd = Nothing  
    Exit Sub  

CreateViewError:  

    Set cat = Nothing  
    Set cmd = Nothing  

    If Err <> 0 Then  
        MsgBox Err.Source & "-->" & Err.Description, , "Error"  
    End If  
End Sub  
' EndCreateViewVB
