Default ADO Master/detail -Help!

Hello People
I am writing a little program in VB6 to communicate with 2 tables in Access2000. One table contains "Students" and the other one "Courses".
On my one and only form I have id number and name of each student (coming from the first table) in two input boxes and list of their course (max 6 courses) with their grades in a grid.
Using wizard I have made the form, but there is no way to add anything to the "child or details".
The book was no help in that regard either.
Can anyone sugegst something?
Thanks in advance.

The master records would be the student table and the child (or details) would be the course-grade table.
Wizard (VB's application development wizard) can make the forms but they do not have any capability for adding records to the details.
Say you wanted to crete a new record for a student who is taking 3 courses. The wizard's application will not be abkle to do the new record creation.
