Hi,
I'm using VB6 with access97, connecting to DB with ADO
I use one form to insert data into the DB.
I have another form with a combo box that populated with data from the DB,
The problem is that once I insert data, the combo box on the other form showes the new
data ONLY if O CLOSE the program and run it again.

How can I refresh the DB (like commit in Oracle) so I can re-populate the combo box?
thanx.

Hi Zolpo,

After inserting data, call the refresh method of ADO recordset in your first form and after that call the refresh method of combo box on another form

on your form, after inserting data:

Private Sub Insert_Click()  // or whatever event it is
    { ... your codes for inserting data into Access ...
      :
     }
     Unload Me
     Dim frmNewForm as New Form1
     frmNewForm.Show
End Sub

this reloads your form and updates your database; instead of closing your form to refresh manually, this does it for you automatically.
