View the Names of Your Database Fields Directly From the IDE

When developing code that maps to database fields, you often need to look back at the tables to determine the correct database fields. With VB5, you can now do this without leaving the comfort of the Integrated Development Environment (IDE). Start by setting a breakpoint after the code that populates the recordset, then run the application. When VB breaks at that line, drag your recordset object variable onto the Watches window, or open the Locals window. Click on the plus sign to open the recordset. You can look at any recordset properties, including the field names.
