Data input

I need to input a lot of data to a program, using text boxes its unpractical, how can I use exel like tables for the data??

RE: Data input

The answer to you prayers lies in the grid FlexGrid control.  It is a spreadsheet-like grid wich is handy for entering data in a tabular format.  I am currently in the process of upgrading to VB.NET from V5, but I guess the functionality in V6 is the same as V5. In chapter 7 of the Visual Basic Programmer's guide (V5) page 266, there is a neat explanation about how you can create an Excel-like user interface for entering big ammounts of data.


RE: Data input

In VB use a grid control. (Microsoft FlexGrid control).

RE: Data input

I will throw in my opinion and agree with what has been suggested. The flexgrid control is very easy to implement and use.
