Could you update more?
I think program by default runs a statement at one time and hence would wait when calling excutenonquery before moving to next line

I have small C# application. I use OleDbConnection to access to mdb database file.

I have listbox on my form where is shown for example list of companies. To insert new company I call (ShowDialog()) new form, where user fill all necessary informations. After click on accept button I call insert command:

myCommand.CommandText = "INSERT INTO companies (xxxx) VALUES (yyyy)";
try
{
      myCommand.ExecuteNonQuery();
}
catch (System.Data.OleDb.OleDbException ex)
{
      MessageBox.Show(ex.Message);
}
this.close();

On end of insert procedure I close dialog form and on main form I call refresh procedure, where I clear my listbox, I access to database and I read new listbox items. And new company is not shown between comapanies items. I need refresh form again.

When after
      myCommand.ExecuteNonQuery();
line I insert line
      MessageBox.Show("Wait a moment!");
and before click OK I wait a few seconds, new company is represented between listbox items. But this is not very cool solution. I want to force my application programatically to wait for executing insert command. How do it?

That's very odd...when I do something similar, it seems to be running synchronously, and I haven't been able to see the old values, even though I look at it immediately after updating it. You might try running the command in a transaction -- call BeginTransaction() on the connection, set the Transaction property of the command that you're executing, then call Commit() on the transaction. If that doesn't help, then I'm not sure where to go from there. Perhaps you somehow toggled a setting that puts the data system into asynchronous mode?

It doesn't works too.
I first time meet with this problem. Usually I work with SQL Server and there I haven't similar problems .
Possilble is everything, but how can I set it? I have no ideas.

I've used this approach a lot with Ado.Net and Access database.  The ExecuteNonQuery is definitely running Synchronously.  That's not your error.

I'm betting you have a totally different error than what you are expecting.

Put another catch in.  I know of a bug where if you are running this in response to an event or in a different thread, the Exception is ingored.

try
{
     myCommand.ExecuteNonQuery();
}
catch (System.Data.OleDb.OleDbException ex)
{
     MessageBox.Show(ex.Message);
}
catch( Exception ex )
{
   MessageBox.Show( ex.Message );
}

I try it and no exception appears. I have some other parts of code in try statement after ExecuteNonQuery command. And this code allways runs correctly. All my application runs in one thread. I think that the only one explanation for my problem is that myCommand running asynchronously.
