Hello there...

I had a great time reading data from a serial port and then placing it into an Access table.  However the data that comes across from the MSComm1.Input is sometimes to long.  Is there anyway to allow only 49 characters in at a time? AND THEN CLEAR THE BUFFER?
Here is what my code looks like:

Private Sub Receive_Click()

Dim Db As Database
Dim rs As Variant

   
Text1.Text = MSComm1.Input
    'Open Database
Set Db = Workspaces(0).OpenDatabase("C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Basic\serial")
    'Open table
Set rs = Db.OpenRecordset("tbl_main", dbOpenDynaset)
   
rs.AddNew
rs("fld_String") = Text1.Text
rs.Update                             ' Save changes.
rs.Move 0, rs.LastModified            ' Go to new record
rs.Close                              ' Close Table.
Db.Close                              ' Close Database

End Sub

Insert the line:

MSComm1.InputLen = 49

Before the Line:

Text1.Text = MSComm1.Input
