lets say you have something like this:

MyDatabase.GetAllRecords()
MsgBox "Done!"

with synchronous communication, the messagebox would show after the MyDatabase.GetAllRecords() has completed. Asynchonous would show the messagebox directly after the line of code above it is read, as the GetAllRecords() is executing...

You would use it (asynchronous execution) say if you have a huge database (5m records maybe?) and didnt want the user to think the computer had hung...

Hope this helps! Correct me if Im wrong experts!
