This Access 2000 How To's article explains how to load data into a treeview control. Nodes in a treeview have a parent key and a child key. In this example, the first level of nodes contains process ids and titles. In the second level, Activities represent dependant child nodes. One or more activies are associated as children to the a process.

When the user clicks on a node, its key is parsed and the contents determine the type of node: process or activity. Depending on the type of node, a filter criteria is applied to a join between the process and activity table.

Building the Control

Option Explicit

    iOffset = InStr(Node.Key, "AT")
    If (iOffset > 0) Then
        iLength = Len(Node.Key)
        sId = Mid(Node.Key, iOffset + 2, iLength - iOffset + 1)
        'Filter for a task
        Filter = "Id=" & sId
        FilterOn = True
        iOffset = InStr(Node.Key, "P")
        'Filter for a process
        If iOffset > 0 Then
            iLength = Len(Node.Key)
            For i = iOffset To iLength
                ch = Mid(Node.Key, iOffset + i, 1)
                If IsNumeric(ch) = True Then
