updating records with a multiuser program
I want to know how to code a program to allow users to enter a record and
it automatically update all other users program. I am using VB6 with Access
97 and ADO. I am using comboboxes to access records, so it would be nice
when a user clicks on the combobox the record another user has entered would
be available in the box. Any suggestions? Thanks.
Re: updating records with a multiuser program
You could postpone loading the ComboBox until the DropDown event.
Either that, or you'll have to do a scheduled refresh, or write some
central data server that everybody hooks into.
I have also heard of a new 'binding engine' in .NET, but the idea makes
me want to vomit.
