Hi Lee,

Getting the identity of the added student is easy, in the Save Sub just 

   Dim sSQL As String = "SELECT MAX(students_id) FROM students;"
   Dim i As Integer

   i = DataSource1.Connection.Exec(sSQL)[0]
   Print "STUDENT ID = "; i

I still couldn't select the correct row though, I always end up 
selecting the last one
