How to refresh DataGrid Control when updating the Database?

  I use an DataGrid Control and the datasource is set as the name of an ADODC Control.The datas showed at the DataGrid are from several tables. After modifying the datas of one of these tables by SQL through ADODB.Connection.Execute method, I always refresh the ADODC control and the DataGrid control by the "refresh" method of both controls. To my suprised, the datas in the DataGrid are not changed at all. Why? that below are codes:

    lngBookID = adoBooks.Recordset(0) 'adoBooks is ADODC
    strSql = "update books set BookName='" & txt2ShowBookName.Text Where BookID = " & CStr(lngBookID)
   
   gblDBConn.Execute strSql 'gblDBConn is ADODB.Connection

    adoBooks.Refresh
    grd2Books.Refresh 'grd2Books is DataGrid Control

What puzzled me is that if I write the Refresh Codes in the Click Event Sub of ButtonBox like that:

    Private Sub Command1_Click()
     adoBooks.Refresh
     grd2Books.Refresh
    End Sub

and when I click the ButtonBox, the datas in the Grid are refreshed.
   Can Someone tell me what's the matter?

Try to use
Doevents
between the .Execute and the .Refresh...
I guess that your Refresh comes toooooo fast :-)

Are you using only 1 connection? You won't get problems this way.

Have a look at

I use two Connection. One is ADODB.Connection Object, the other is ADODC. The question is that The first
time I change the data, the grid doesn't refresh at all. But if I change the data again, the grid will
show the data which I changed the first time. and the third time the second-time data is showed. why?

Don't connect through ADODC. Use only one connection. You don't need an ADODC to use a grid. You can simply open a static recordset and bind it to the grid this way:

set datagrid1.datasource = YourRecordset

If you absolutely want to keep your ADODC, your will need to refresh your connections (see the links of my previous post).

>>show the data which I changed the first time. and the third time the second-time data is showed. why?

This is because Access is not a real database engine. It is only a file sharing manager!

Hi Iaskyou,
It appears that you have forgotten this question. I will ask Community Support to close it unless you finalize it within 7 days. I will ask a Community Support Moderator to:

    *** even though emoreau's suggestion to avoid ADODC is the best solution -- a real winner
