From Command Prompt to Access DB in Real Time
Posted on 2005-04-13
I have a txt file that includes the names and phone numbers. This file is read by a dialing software and then the number is dialed. In the other room, the operator can see the number and the name of the person, who the program is calling. The operator sees the number in Dos prompt / Cmd line mode. It looks like something like this
Calling: Asim Meesaq
XYZABC(AFTER FIRST CALL IS COMPLETED)
Now the problem is that I want to see this results in Access window. Reason, its more clear, more prominent and looks good. Plus it keeps a data. So in other words I want to the operator to be able to see what they are looking at in the dos promopt at the moment, in access forms. If there is a better idea or easier way, I am willing to acquire that way too. The bottom line is that the screen infornt of the operators should be nicer plus they should be able to write some comments when they are talking over the phone to the customer. Right now, in Dos prompt/ command line, they can not write any thing what they are talking to the customers. So they have to switch the screens betwwen the dos and access to write down the comments, and on top of that they have to type the name and phone number so it takes too long of their time. Even a small VB script if it can get the job done will do fine for me.
Thank You guys. And we will be intouch
