Data Control for Visual Basic 6.0 Users
The Visual Basic 6.0 Data control is used as a mechanism for binding controls to a database using DAO. Visual Basic 2008 has no equivalent for the Data control; the data-binding architecture has changed and DAO is no longer supported. For more information, see Data Access for Visual Basic 6.0 Users.
The Data control also provides an interface for navigating data, with buttons for moving back and forth through rows in a database table. Visual Basic 2008 has an equivalent control, the BindingNavigator control, which also contains buttons for adding and deleting rows.
