How do I make several programs access one open database. I only know when there is one database and one program. i.e opening the database in that program.

I want a case whereby one program will be able to add records to the database whereas one only reads the records.
The simplest solution will do. I am using Visual Basic 4.0.

To open a database for read/Write access use:
Set dbWrite = wksmain.OpenDatabase("dbName.mdb", False)
To open a database for Read Only access use:
Set dbRead = wksmain.OpenDatabase("dbName.mdb", False,True)

is this what you need?

I am not sure if what you gave me is what I wanted. but i said I need, like 2 or more applications accessing the same database simultaneously or concurrently for both read and write. I hope I made myself clear.
