Colleagues,

This is probably a trivial problem for those who know. I have a report in my project, which is linked to a table through a command object. When I display the report for the first time, it shows the correct contents of the table. Then I update the table, and display the report again. It still shows the old data. How can I refresh it?

Thanks!

Nick

If this is a report made in crystal reports than you most probably have clicked the option 'Save Data With Report' in First drop down menu (probably File menu). Uncheck this option and you should see the refreshed data.

No, it’s not a Crystal Report. I’m using a VB6 DataReport.

You need to close your command and re-open it. See the example at http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;244779&Product=vb6

Hi emoreau!

I found a different solution myself - I just refresh the recordset, which belongs to command. Anyways, your answer is worth the points. Thanks!
