Default textbox binding tryout

On page 54 of Beginning Visual Basic 2005 Databases,step 3 says to click the drop down arrow for the Text property. it states that the data source window will come up. On my try, the data source window did not come up. A text box with instructions to enter text came up. I note that a data source has not been designated prior to this step. What needs to be done.

Once you expand the DataBinding property you will see the Text property beneath it. It should have a value of "(none)" already in the property and clicking on the drop down arrow should invoke the Data Source window. Please very that you are following the steps as outlined in Step 3 on page 54.

If you have verified this then please let me know what version of Visual Basic you are using.

Thanks,
Thearon

I posted a reply to this three days ago, but do not see it attached. I uninstalled Visual Basic and then reinstalled it. The problem referred to earlier cleared up. Thanks for your response.

Don't know it this is the place to bring it up but I ran into a problem in Chapter 4 "Inserting a Project Query" Try it out. In step 11, a GUID is generated and instructions are to paste the text box data into the Access dialog box. I cannot paste anything into the dialog box. I cannot find any information about pasting data into dialog boxes. What is the procedure?

You should be able to paste data into that dialog using the shortcut key of CTRL+V or by right clicking in the text field and choosing Paste from the context menu.

Theoron:

The Control + V operation worked. Am working to put an Access data file of amateur radio contacts with 3500 records into VB2005. Highest level of VB I programmed before was VB4 so this is a totally new experience for me. Your book is very helpful in making the transition.

Tnx for your help...
