    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.

    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.
