DBGrid, Oracle, RDO, and Inserting Records
Posted on 1998-09-25
Hi. Need to know how to use the DBGrid to access data in an Oracle database.
My business need is to allow users the ability to review data that has been uploaded into the database into several tables. Once they fix any data related problems, I need to call a stored procedure to process the data and write out a delimited file that another program will read.
I need this by next week and dont have the time to learn everything I need to know about VB5 between now and then. Figured I would use the DBGrid control that comes with VB5 Enterprise Edition but it seems flakey. I used the Forms Wizard to attach to the database and pick the columns I need from a table. When I run the program, no data appears. Havent been able to figure out how to set programatically.
When I accidently!! got it to sortof work once, it blew chunks when I tried to insert a record.
Any code samples would be VERY appreciative.
Have figured out how to use RDO to get a result set but not how to get the grid to use it or how to use it to update/insert data.
I dont know how hard this question really is. My guess was that someone that knew VB pretty good would be able to do this in a weekend but the 3 VB programmers we have here say they dont know anything about RDO and are terrified of oracle.
