SQL PUSH  DATA

I don't know if this is possible, but I would some how in a stored procedure push somthing to the users of my program. Here's what I mean. I have lets say 10 users who view a datagrid(vb.net) and when one of these users updates the table  via Stored procedure, I would like the Stored Procedure to some how send out some, form of communication to the users telling them that there is new data. ( so they can refresh the DG or what ever). I currently have the VB program just pooling data every 5 secs from the DB, but wonder if there is a better way to do it. Sort of a push from the DB rather than having the program pull so often.

I would love any information in the right direction.

Polling the database with a query is the only way, basically. You could have a job that updates a column in a small "monitor" table. Then all your users could refer to that value. That way, you do not have every user launching the same query against your real data.

Yes .. but use a trigger to update your monitor table with "LAST UPDATE TIME"
then the client apps can hold the "last update time" and when it goes out of sync... reload
