     The purpose of this sample application is to demonstrate the utilization of various controls in VB.NET that will allow you to access, view and display records in an MS Access database. I have tried to demonstrate, through usage of various procedures, functions and events how to: (1) Initializing a new Connection to an Access Database using the OpenFileDialog to search for the particular database, (2) Display records in a TreeView Control, (3) By selecting and expanding any one of the TreeView Nodes, you will be able to view selected items in a recordset in a DataGridView Control utilizing a DataTable as the DataSource, (4) Create, and populate selected items in an HTML report, (5) Display the HTML report(s) in a WebBrowser Control, (6) Display the HTML reports in your default browser. References: Add a reference to Microsoft ActiveX Data Objects 2.8 Library in order to access the MS Access Database. NOTE: If you using a version of VB.NET older than VB2008, you must first create a new project and than import all the files in this sample project before running it.

I definitely claim copyright to some of the source code utilized within this project. I have also utilized source code from various other coders, too many to mention at this point, and have tried my best to mention their names here within, if not, my apologies.

Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
