VS 2008 Searching A .mdb Database?

Jun 11, 2009

how to add and remove entries from a database and now I need to know how to search it. I'm going to be scanning a directory and subdirectories and adding all files found to the database. I need to check if the file has already been entered into the database before adding it.

I though it'd be simple and would just require looping though each entry and checking the item for each entry. I played around with a while loop a bit and ran into some problems. Like when the database is empty.

I don't want to half-ass some code that seems to work, since that'd probably be slow and inefficient.

Also what are the technical terms for a column and row in a database. I'd to use the proper terms in the future.

VS 2008 - Database - Searching Through My Binding Source ?

May 20, 2009

I have a microsoft database file i'm currently working with in a project. I have already added the data source and all seems to be going well. Quick question though? What I'm looking to do was, have a button called find, when I click it I want it to bring up an input box and use the text the user types in to search through my binding source of names, if it's there I need to display its record to the textbox and if it's not there I need to print out a messagebox saying its not there. I've been told I should trim the usersResponse and look through the binding source table to see if it exists then go from there, but i'm not sure how to do that.

Here's what I have so far:

Dim Message As String = "Enter the name to find."
Const Title As String = "Database Project - Find"
Const UserEnteredNullData As String = "No input for find."

[CODE]...

My question is, how would I go about searching through my binding source to see if it exists and how would I display it to the name text box?

Searching A Database With Use Of The 'LIKE' Statement?

Apr 3, 2009

I am currently trying to develop a program, for personal use, that will monitor the lending of items of music equipments to friends and family etc. And, for my program, I have a requirement, which is the ability to search a relational database, for items loaned, through my program, based on criteria entered in a set of text boxes located upon the program's form. I have already set up the form, and have searched the Internet high and low, to no avail (probably didn't look hard enough).e,I would also like to make another request... if possible I would like to achieve this task with use of the 'LIKE' statement, so that I don't have to input the criteria in full, when I wish to search the database.

The database that I am using is a standard Microsoft Office Access database, saved in a '.mdf' format, and the database comprises of three tables; LoanTbl (which specifies the loan details), EquipTbl (which contains information about the equipment loaned) and a LinkTbl (which forms the relationship between these former two tables) - the reason for the LinkTbl, even though it may seem unnecessary, is because the data has undergone 'normalisation', so that it is stored in the most efficient way possible.

Also, whilst I am on the point of linking together my program and database, does anyone also possibly have any ideas as to ways in which to add data to this relational database; I do have coding for this, however, it only applies to a stand-alone table, whereas there are relationships between my tables.

I tried looking up Threads that would search through an access database, but I keep running into this:

I have all ready added the data source and even added a section where they could add in somebody to the database. But I can't seem to get the search part down?

Searching Data In An Access Database?

Apr 28, 2011

I know how to search for one specific number from a single line in an access database using a query, but now I have to search through a whole database and display each instance. Ex) I search the number "1" in column "1" of the database and it has "2" instances. So now I have to take the corresponding data in the rows next to it in order to display them in the label.

search: "1", both results are ID = "1"

results:
dates amount
10/13/2009 $43.00
12/25/2009 $86.00

I know how to put the results for "1" line of a database into the .item field, but im confused on how to search multiple lines of a database and store multiple items. Heres what I have so far...

Private Sub btnShowPay_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles btnShowPay.Click
