I am currently learning vb and have started to design a piece of software for recording temperatures, I admit I have used extracts from someone elses code.  My problem is I can show the current temp on the 3 seperate labels I am using and can then use print to make a csv text file, however I would like some sample code to save direct into access I also need to save the date and time with each temperature recorded.  I am refreshing the temperature on the label every 30 seconds.
