Dear experts;

I have a table(Authors: AuthorID/autnumber,AuthorName/ text).

In some forms I need to populate all authors in Data List combo box ordered by authorname. I do that by;

dim AuthRS as Adodb.recordset
set AuthRS = new adodb.recordset

Authrs.Open "Select * From Authors Order By AuthorName", _
        myConn,,adCmdText

set Combo1.RowSource=AuthRS

it works fine when the recordset cursor location is clientside, but the problem is my application is networkable and some workstation adding authors and the others use other forms that contains the desired combo box. if iam going to requery the recordset it will take a few seconds to repopulate the new data. Is there any way to keep my table dynamic to all users? if i use the serverside cursor location then the statement :
     Set Combo1.RowSource = AuthRS
will not work.

many thanks,

You need to refresh the recordset explicitly. VB won't do it for you. You normally fill combos when you open the form and you may offer a button to force the refresh of your controls if your data is volatile.
