Grid Development

Hi all

Ok heres my query...

I have a grid which i use to display data extracted from a database.
I want this grid to be editable, but want that the changes are made in the database only when i press the command button "Save"

However, currently I am facing the problem, that even if i Press Cancel, any changes made in the grid are saved to the database. Can I prevent this dynamic save in any way????

Pls help.

my current code is this:

Private Sub cmdCancel_Click()
Unload Me
End Sub

Private Sub Form_Load()

Call Open_rneVersionCtrl

Set dbgProdVersCtrl.DataSource = frmLogin.rneVersionCtrl

dbgProdVersCtrl.Columns(0).Locked = True
dbgProdVersCtrl.Columns(1).Locked = True

End Sub

Public Sub Open_rneVersionCtrl()

'close record set if it is open
If frmLogin.rneVersionCtrl.State = adStateOpen Then frmLogin.rneVersionCtrl.Close

frmLogin.rneVersionCtrl.CursorLocation = adUseClient 'set the CursorLoccation for rneUser

frmLogin.rneVersionCtrl.Open "SELECT Proj_Prod_Relation.product, Version_Control.* FROM Proj_Prod_Relation, Version_Control WHERE Version_Control.projPRodID = Proj_Prod_Relation.projProdID AND Proj_Prod_Relation.customerID = '" & custIDSelected & "' AND Proj_Prod_Relation.projectID = '" & projectIDSelected & "'", frmLogin.cneSupport, adOpenStatic, adLockOptimistic

End Sub

Hope this helps....
why not use trasactions.


Private Commit as boolean
Private conn as ADODB.Connection

Private Sub Form_Load()
   Commit = false
   ' Open the connection
   Set conn = new ADODB.Connection
   conn.Open "<your connection string>"
   ' begin trasaction
End Sub

Private cmdOK_Click()
    Commit = true
    Unload Me
ENd Sub

Private cmdCancel_Click()
    Unload Me
ENd Sub

Private Sub Form_Unload()
    If (conn.State = adStateOpen) then
        if (Commit) then
            conn.CommitTrans  ' save changes
            conn.RollbackTrans 'undo changes
        End if
        set conn = nothing
    end if
End Sub

The other way is to use a disconnected record set.  Or disconnected the recordset after you read but before you display the data.
