To trite to a DB i would use ADO, for the folowing code to work you have to add Microsoft ActiveX Data Object. you need version 2.6 to ba able to use Access 2000. Also the conection string in the code id for a access 2000 DB located in the same directory as the program.

Dim Con As New ADODB.Connection
Dim RS As New ADODB.Recordset

Con.Mode = adModeReadWrite
Con.ConnectionString = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=" & App.Path & "\NameOfDB.mdb;Persist Security Info=False"

RS.Open "NameOfTable", Con, adOpenKeyset, , adCmdTable
RS("FieldName1") = "Value to save1"
RS("FieldName2") = "Value to save2"
RS("FieldName3") = "Value to save3"

this is probably one of the better ways of saving the data to a DB but there are may more and partly simpler ways

hope this was helpfull

Hi Lee, just comment that Before you do your data entries, besure your database is already normalized, reduce those duplication and redundancy.

Use ADODB.Connection as it's the faster way to save data if compared with ADODC Data Control.
