    A program that sends information in a network from a database

    Please I want to get an idea on how to write a program that will send a request to a particular system after a request form must have been filled by the client. The program can also check if the item being requested is available in the database. Thanks

    What database are you using?

    What is the "particular system"?

    Since you posted in VB Classic I assume the front end will be written VB6, right?

    The database is MS Access.

    Ok...one out of three questions isn't bad.

    What about the other two that I asked?

    Database

    Two ways come to mind.
    1: Map common network drive to hold Database.
    2: Setup ODBC connection

    Then use ADO in VB to access data

    Hint #2 is best choice.


    Good Luck
